WordPress Development Tool Built by Developers for Developers

No bloat; just the tools you need to develop faster

We use WP Reset every day to develop, debug and maintain dozens of WordPress themes & plugins. We only add features that are needed to get the job done.

One Click Site Reset

It’s as easy and as fast as it sounds. Whenever you need a fresh WordPress installation just click “reset” & wait a few seconds.

WP-CLI Compatible

You’re more of a typing than clicking guy? We have you covered! WP Reset is 100% WP-CLI compatible making it super-fast to work with.


No outsourced nonsense. When you need help you’ll get it from the people who built the plugin and use it every day – for free!

Post-Reset Setup

No need to manually set options or reactivate plugins & themes. WP Reset will reconfigure your environment just the way you want it.

Database Snapshots

Have some demo data or custom tables that you need for testing? No sweat. Just restore your installation to the selected snapshot.

Database Diff Viewer

Not sure what that pesky plugin or theme changed in your database? Find out with one click & get a visual representation of the data.

You have questions we have answers.

Can I accidentally reset my site?

No, that’s not possible due to multiple fail-safe mechanisms. You have to confirm the reset action in several different ways.

Will resetting modify any files?

No. Resetting does not modify or delete any files; core, plugin, theme or uploaded ones.

Will resetting delete my custom database tables?

It depends. WP Reset will erase (drop) all tables that have the same table prefix as defined in wp-config.php. That includes any custom tables you have. It will not delete any other tables in the active database.

Will active plugins be automatically reactivated?

No. At the moment only WP Reset will be reactivated after resetting. We’re working on options to reactivate other plugins too.

Will my theme be reactivated after resetting?

No. Default, 2017 theme will be activated. We’re working on options to reactivate the previously active theme.

Is this plugin dangerous?

In the sense that it will delete all of your data after you confirm the action three times – yes. In the sense that it’ll do something on its own – no.

Is it WP-MU compatible?

WP-MU compatibility hasn’t been properly tested although we have reports from users that everything is OK. So, please, proceed with caution.

I don’t understand the point of this plugin

If you don’t develop themes, plugins or create WP sites in general, then you probably don’t need it. If you do, it’ll help you when things get messy, and you need to start from scratch.

Happy Users

Users love WP Reset for its power, ease of use and our friendly support. Read more reviews.

Works like a charm, and FAST! No need to even read the instructions. I used this to test a demo importer for my premium theme and it was very clear and obvious how to use. Just the right amount of options to help me work fast without being too bloated. Great job!


This plugin rocks! I often test things and this helps so much by giving me a fresh slate with ease. Thank you! Five Stars all the way!

People Who Don’t Build Email Lists Die at Early Age

If you open any website for the first time, it’ll greet you with a minimum of two chores. One is to close the cookie / GDPR consent box, and the other is to enter your email. By the end of your session, you’ll be asked for the email another 5 times. On an average day, you’ll be prompted for your email at least a hundred times. Do you like that? No, you don’t, and neither do your visitors, but people collect emails, so they don’t die!

How to Determine What Changes a Plugin or Theme Made to the Site After Activation

Installing a plugin (or theme) means that you are entirely trusting your site into the hands of their developers. There are no restrictions on what the code you’re putting on the site can do. Regardless of where you’re installing plugins from, official WP repository or some shady site, you’ll be left wondering – what changes did a plugin make to my site? Database snapshots can answer that question with ease.
