I have used this command to add a user (for testing purposes):
PIX(config)# username admincity password nicecity

Later on I have removed that username (admincity) by using the command below :
PIX(config)# no username admincity
Warning:Local user database is empty and there are still commands using 'LOCAL' for authentication.

What cisco says :

Conversely, if the local database becomes empty when LOCAL is still present in the command, the following warning message appears:
Warning:Local user database is empty and there are still commands using 'LOCAL' for authentication.

1- Did I delete all users, if there were any ?

2- If I deleted them can I restore them ?

3- What is the proper command to delete specific user ? Is it "clear admincity" ?

Note: It is production device, i want to be sure that I am not going to screw up everything.

Regards

You have to remove this line first
>PIX(config)# aaa authentication http console LOCAL

Then remove the username
PIX(config)#no aaa authentication http console LOCAL
PIX(config)# no username admincity
