I have an urgent question.
How do I reset the data in a Mysql database table. I need to reset the values of a certain field to Zero. I have a PTR site and need the clicks reset to zero. Can anyone help? I think I should use the Reset or Flush command but I'm not sure how to do this correctly.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Why don't you just update the field in the table?

update <tablename>
set <fieldname> = 0

This will set all values of the column <fieldname>  in the table <tablename> to zero.
For more info on the update statement : http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/UPDATE.html

The Flush and Reset commands are used to clear the cache of the MySQL server, not the data...
