mysql auto increment Reset

in order to reset the auto_increment, in a situation where some of the most recently added rows were deleted, use:

ALTER TABLE theTableInQuestion AUTO_INCREMENT=1234

and future insertions will be numbered from 1234 again (unless you still had rows numbered greater than 1234, and then the future insertions will start from the greatest number + 1 ).
