How to use a category URL previously used?

    I tried to rename General category and URL to newname (so permalinks will look: instead of that seems not to work because nothing changed.

    So I just make a new category called Newname but it says can’t use URL newname as “it’s already been used”. How can I solve that?

    Thanks in advance!
