is there a way to remove the category from the database?

I just moving my old wordpress blog (that has the category in url), to new domain (without category).

I change everything except the category. Even i don't know where it is stored in database :(


Problem is resolved, I added the answer below so that it will help to others.

  • From url use "no category base" plugin.i do not know how to remove from database. – ahmetlutfu Apr 27 '14 at 12:04

It is done through the following query:

delete from `wp_terms` where `term_id` in ( SELECT `term_id`
    FROM `wp_term_taxonomy`
    WHERE `taxonomy` = 'category' ) and `term_id` not like 1

This query deleted all the category except the default. Hope this helps to the others.
