How can I do a simple re-install. I made some mistakes with my database and custom modules. I want to delete the WHOLE database altogether and do a fresh installation. However I do not want to upload ALL the files again - takes ages. Did the first installation create a configuration file and if so where is it so I can delete it...and are there any other files I need to delete/replace so that the installation starts up from fresh.
