To delete all references to a database in XAMPP, you will need to do the following steps:

  1. First, stop the MySQL database server in XAMPP. You can do this by opening the XAMPP Control Panel, clicking on the "Stop" button next to MySQL.
  2. Next, open phpMyAdmin in your web browser by going to http://localhost/phpmyadmin.
  3. In phpMyAdmin, log in with your username and password (usually "root" and no password by default).
  4. On the left-hand side, you will see a list of databases. Click on the database you want to delete references to.
  5. Once inside the database, click on the "Check All" link to select all tables in the database.
  6. With all tables selected, click on the "Drop" option at the bottom of the page. This will delete all tables in the database.
  7. Next, go back to the main page in phpMyAdmin and click on the "Databases" tab. Here, you will see a list of all databases in your MySQL server.
  8. Find the database you want to delete and click on the "Drop" link next to it. This will delete the database and all references to it in XAMPP.
  9. Finally, restart the MySQL server in XAMPP by clicking on the "Start" button next to MySQL in the XAMPP Control Panel.


By following these steps, you will have successfully deleted all references to a database in XAMPP. Please make sure to always backup your databases before performing any deletions.
