Make sure you enter your login details correctly to avoid any login errors. If you have forgotten your password, you can click on the “Forgot your password?” link and follow the prompts to reset it.
If you have enabled two-factor authentication for your account, you will also need to enter a verification code after you enter your password. This code can be generated through an authentication app on your phone or sent to you via text message or email.
It is important to keep your login details secure to prevent unauthorized access to your account. You can enable two-factor authentication, use a strong and unique password, and avoid sharing your login details with anyone.

Step 2: Select the Server
After logging in to your Discord account, navigate to the left-hand panel and select the server you want to delete.
If you have a lot of servers, you can use the search bar at the top of the left-hand panel to find the server quickly.
If you are having trouble finding the server, you can also sort your servers by name, by clicking on the arrow icon at the top of the server list.
Once you have found the server you want to delete, click on the downward arrow icon next to the server name to open a drop-down menu.
From the drop-down menu, select Server Settings to access the server settings page.
To delete a server on Discord, you need to select the server first. To do this:
- Open Discord: Launch the Discord application on your device.
- Go to Server List: Click on the server icon located on the left side of the Discord screen. This will take you to your server list.
- Select the Server: Find the server that you want to delete from the list and click on it. This will take you to the server’s main page.
If you have a long list of servers, you can use the search bar located at the top of the server list to search for the server you want to delete.
2.2: Click on the Server You Want to Delete
After you’ve navigated to the server list, locate the server you want to delete. This will typically be found at the top of the list, under the “Servers” category. Click on the server to open it.
Once the server has been opened, take note of the server name and the list of channels and members. This will help you ensure that you’re deleting the correct server.
Before proceeding to delete the server, make sure that you’re the server owner or have the necessary permissions to delete the server. If you’re not the server owner, you’ll need to contact the server owner and request that they delete the server.
If you’re the server owner and you’re certain that you want to delete the server, proceed to the next step.
Step 3: Go to Server Settings
Once you have selected the server you want to delete, click on the server name at the top of the screen to open the server dropdown menu.

After clicking on the server name, a drop-down menu will appear. This menu will display different options for the server, including Server Settings.
Click on Server Settings to proceed to the next step.
3.2: Select the “Server Settings” Option
Once you’ve clicked on the server name, a menu will appear on the left-hand side of your screen. Scroll down to the bottom of this menu, and you’ll see an option labeled “Server Settings”.
Click on this option to be taken to the server settings page, where you can manage various aspects of your server, including roles and permissions, channels, and moderation settings.
It’s important to note that only server administrators have access to the server settings page. If you don’t have the necessary permissions, you won’t be able to make any changes to the server settings.
Make sure you’re an administrator before attempting to modify any server settings. If you’re not sure whether you have the necessary permissions, check with the server owner or another administrator.
Once you’re on the server settings page, you can begin to make any necessary changes to the server’s configuration. Be sure to take your time and double-check your changes before saving them, as some settings can have a significant impact on your server’s functionality.
Step 4: Delete Roles and Channels
Review existing roles and channels: Before deleting roles and channels, it is important to review your existing ones. Make a list of the roles and channels that you want to delete to avoid accidentally removing ones you need.
Delete channels: To delete a channel, right-click on it and select “Delete Channel.” Confirm the deletion by clicking on “Delete Channel” again. Deleted channels cannot be recovered.
Delete roles: To delete a role, go to the server settings and click on the “Roles” tab. Hover over the role you want to delete and click on the three dots icon that appears. Select “Delete” and confirm the deletion.
Delete multiple roles at once: You can delete multiple roles at once by selecting them using the Shift or Ctrl key and clicking on the three dots icon that appears. Select “Delete” and confirm the deletion.
Review and confirm: After deleting the roles and channels, take a moment to review your server and make sure everything is still functioning properly. Double-check that you did not accidentally delete anything important.
4.1: Go to the “Roles” Section
To delete roles on a server, you need to navigate to the “Roles” section. This is where you can manage all the roles that exist on the server, including deleting them. You can find the “Roles” section in the server settings menu.
When you enter the “Roles” section, you will see a list of all the roles that exist on the server. You can scroll through the list to find the role you want to delete. Alternatively, you can use the search bar at the top of the page to find the role more quickly.
Once you have found the role you want to delete, you can click on it to open its settings. From there, you will be able to delete the role permanently. It’s important to note that deleting a role will remove all its permissions and settings from the server, so make sure you are deleting the correct role before proceeding.
4.2: Delete all Channels in the Server
Step 1: Navigate to the “Server Settings” by following the steps in “Step 3”.
Step 2: Click on the “Channels” tab to view all the channels in the server.
Step 3: Hover over each channel and click on the gear icon to open the settings.
Step 4: Click on “Delete Channel” and confirm the action to delete the channel.
Step 5: Repeat this process for each channel in the server until all channels have been deleted.
Step 5: Delete Emojis
Deleting emojis is an important step to ensure a complete server cleanup. Emojis are added to a server to make conversations more engaging, but over time, the server may accumulate irrelevant or outdated emojis.
To delete emojis, go to the server settings and click on the “Emoji” option. From here, select the emoji you want to delete and click on the three dots that appear. Next, click on “Delete Emoji” to remove it from the server.
If you have multiple emojis that you want to delete, repeat the process for each one. This step may take some time depending on the number of emojis you have on your server.
It is important to note that once an emoji is deleted, it cannot be recovered. Therefore, make sure you only delete emojis that are no longer needed and that you have no use for them in the future.
5.1: Go to the “Emoji” Section
After you have deleted all channels and roles, the next step is to delete the emojis. To do this, go to the “Emoji” section of the server settings.
Once you are in the “Emoji” section, you will see a list of all the emojis that are currently on the server. Each emoji will have an icon and a name.
Step 6: Delete Server Members
Now that all the channels, roles, and emojis have been deleted, it’s time to remove the members from the server. This step is important to ensure that no one can access the server or its contents after it has been deleted.
To delete server members, go to the “Members” section of the server settings. From there, you can click on each member’s name and select “Kick” to remove them from the server. You can also select multiple members at once and kick them all at once.
Be sure to inform any members who need to save their conversations or files to do so before they are kicked. Once they are removed from the server, they will not be able to access any of its content.
It’s also a good idea to have a backup of the server’s contents in case any important information was not saved by individual members.
6.1: Go to the “Members” Section
Once you’re in your Discord server, click on the “Members” section located in the server’s left-hand menu. This will display a list of all members currently in the server.
To delete a member, simply click on their name and select the “Kick” option. You’ll be asked to confirm this action before it takes effect.
Alternatively, you can click on the three dots next to the member’s name and select “Kick Member” from the dropdown menu.
Note that only server administrators can delete members. If you don’t have the necessary permissions, you won’t be able to delete any members from the server.
6.2: Remove All Members from the Server
Once you are in the “Members” section, you will see a list of all the server members. You can select each member and remove them individually, but this can be time-consuming.
Alternatively, you can use a bot or a script to remove all members from the server at once. However, it’s important to note that using a bot or a script can be against Discord’s terms of service and can result in your account being banned.
If you decide to use a bot or a script, make sure you do your research and choose a reputable one. You should also use caution and only give the bot or script the permissions it needs to remove the members, and nothing more.
After all members have been removed, you can delete the server and all of its data will be permanently erased.
Step 7: Delete the Discord Server
Before you proceed with this step, ensure that you have completed all the previous steps mentioned above. Once you have verified that everything is in order, you can delete your Discord server.
To delete your server, go to your server settings and click on the “Delete Server” button at the bottom of the page.
You will then be prompted to confirm your decision. Make sure to read the confirmation message carefully as this action is irreversible.
Once you have confirmed the deletion, all server data, including messages, channels, roles, and members, will be permanently deleted from Discord’s servers.
Remember that this action cannot be undone, so make sure that you have a backup of any important data before proceeding with the deletion process.
7.1: Scroll Down to the Bottom of the Server Settings
Once you’ve completed the previous steps, you’re ready to delete the Discord server. First, you need to scroll down to the bottom of the server settings.
Make sure you have the appropriate permissions to delete the server. If you don’t have the necessary permissions, you won’t be able to delete the server, and you’ll need to contact the server owner or an administrator to delete it for you.
Double-check that you have saved any important data or information from the server that you want to keep, as deleting the server is a permanent action.
Finally, once you’ve confirmed that you have the necessary permissions and have saved any important data, you can proceed to delete the server by clicking on the “Delete Server” button located at the bottom of the settings page.
7.2: Click on the “Delete Server” Button and Confirm
Once you have scrolled down to the bottom of the server settings, locate the “Delete Server” button. This button is located at the very bottom of the server settings and is usually colored in red to make it more noticeable. Click on this button to begin the process of deleting the server.
After you click on the “Delete Server” button, a pop-up message will appear on the screen asking you to confirm that you want to delete the server. This is a safety feature that prevents you from accidentally deleting your server. Click on the “Yes, delete this server” button to confirm your decision and permanently delete the server.
