Uninstall Discourse

I installed Discourse via the one-click Docker Digital Ocean install. The email isn’t working so I’m thinking of starting over.

What’s the safest, most hassle-free way to uninstall Discourse without messing up my Digital Ocean root and IP?

Go to digitalocean account,
In the droplet settings there will be an option to destroy

Under it there will be a menu to reinstall other OS
Instead of one click app, choose Ubuntu 18.04

Thanks! So that should delete my Discourse build?

That will format your server with a fresh OS without changing your IP or droplet size.

Ok great, but what will happen to my Discourse instance?

It will be gone forever. You will have to install again following the official 30 minutes install guide.
