Hi all,

I've gotten a rapacious hacker moving through my sites, and I'm about to start a cleanup that involves essentially deleting everything and recreating a half-dozen blogs. Blah.

I've got my upload files and theme files backed up, as well as the SQL databases. I'm just wondering if there's some sort of unforeseen issue lurking out there if I delete an app and recreate it with the same name -- is there something I'm not anticipating, like an inability to use the same name twice even if the original was deleted?

No, you can reuse the same name for your application, website, database or database user if they are deleted.

I can't think of any other cases that you might encounter.
