It seems that MediaWiki does not have the option of deleting users through the web interface, you have to do it directly in the database. The first thing we should do is to be able to connect using PHPMyAdmin, you can find the information here.

bitnami_mediawiki. On the left, we have a search box to find the specific table, we are looking for a table named
user, so you can use the search box and click on the
user table, you should see the information related to this table, and you can interact with the different parameters. As you can see, you can delete the information relative to a user:
After click on the "Delete" button, the user disappears instantly, you don't need to restart any service.
