Even better way to clear your Web SQL or local dbs in Google Chrome

March 25th, 2013

Thanks to one of my visitors to my site, I have been directed to a much easier and cleaner way to delete your local databases in Google Chrome, simple put this into your address bar in Chrome: chrome://settings/cookies and it will pull up a screen similar to this:

I just simply did a search for “localhost” and it pulled up my site which looked like this:


From there you can delete whatever you want, individual dbs or cookies, any of it.  A much better solution that going out to the file system and blowing away folders and files that are usually in use by chrome which requires a shutdown of all the chrome processes.  I hope this helps others, enjoy!!

How to delete your Web SQL databases in Google Chrome

February 7th, 2013

I am working on a project that makes use of the local web browser storage to cache some items and I noticed when I am in webkit in chrome there is no way to delete my Web SQL database, well I have finally figured out how to at least get rid of them for testing purposes.  Just simply open the run command and put this in there %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\databases, that is the directory you want to clean out to start over again with your local databases.  Don’t forget to shut down all instances of chrome, you may need to go to the Task Manager and end all the chrome processes if you try to delete the contents of that folder and it doesn’t allow you to.
