Go to phpmyadmin select you're existing DB en export if you have done it already, empty the tables (select all) in the db not you're db itself en import the replacement .sql

The sql to create a database can be found in the install files for what ever version you are wanting to use. Either create a new database, or drop all the tables from your old one. It may be safer to create a new one and then change the database files in both configure files to match the new database. What ever you do remember to create a backup of the old one in case you should decide to go back and use it.
