Is there a way to reset the entry_id count for newly created entries?

I'm importing entries with Datagrab and need them to have entry_id's starting from 1. There are no other entries in the system.


If you have MySQL access, you can run the following query:

ALTER TABLE exp_channel_titles AUTO_INCREMENT = 1

You can also run this command from the CP using the Database Query Form under

Tools > Data > SQL Manager > Database Query Form

  • What would be the ramification of doing this with a site with existing entries? – user1365655 Apr 21 '16 at 16:15
