If your using clone from OrangeHRM Github repository, there are some development tools.
i.e. https://github.com/orangehrm/orangehrm/blob/master/devTools/general/reinstall.php
You can run this script to reinstall the instance.

But if you using production build of OrangeHRM from Sourceforge, you have to manually delete <OrangeHRM_root_dir>/lib/confs/Conf.php and reinstall OrangeHRM as usual. If you don't want the old database you have to delete it manually. Finally, clear symfony cache to clear old database connection cache.
