Reinstalls WordPress core (all files, default plugins and themes, etc) but doesn’t touch wp-config.php … since SlickStack sets our free HoverCraft theme as the default theme, that means that brand new installs of SlickStack (WordPress) will result in the HoverCraft theme being activated. However, for existing WordPress installs that have already been configured to use other themes, your current theme and all settings will be preserved.
