Quote1) Because you may have added/created files, and those can cause unexpected problems in the future, the best options is likely to be removing everything and going through the installation process all over again (consider using a different installation and data directory, and a different database - which means you wont need to delete any of you old files) - and result in 2 separate environments, both running at the same time.
Quote2) If you can't do that, then you will need to remove your data files and your config files, before going through the initial setup process again (while you may be able to reuse the same database name, I'd suggest using a different one - or deleting it first). Most systems, will/should create a new database and all the necessary tables along with any initial data. This would give you a (single) fresh/new environment.
