    I need to reinstall wordpress because there are some errors in the current installation that I can't seem to fix. How do I reinstall WP without losing theme & widget configuration? I know via "tools" and "export" and then reinstall and "import", it only saves the content, but it loses the theme configuration. Are there any plugins where that can be bypassed? Thanks
