    I removed word press from my cPanel and when I tried to reinstal wordpress it give me the following information.
    THE INSTALLATION CNA NOT BE COMPLETED:

    _You chose to install in the main directory of the domain softroad4u.com, but here are confilivting filenames, therefore we can not proceed.
    Following filenames already exit in the main directory of the domain softroad4u.com (path="/home/softroad/public_html/"). You must manually remove thse files before proceeding with auto-instalation:
    wp-admim
    wp-content
    wp-includes

    Ckick on the browsers BACK BUTTON to fix reported errors.

    could someone please tell me how to do this.
    Thank Mary

    You haven't removed your old WordPress installation completely.

    In your file manager section of cPanel, you need to delete the wp-admin, wp-content and wp-includes folders. Also, remove any files in your public_html folder which start with wp- and end in .php as these will be part of the same installation.

    Then, try the new installation again. :)

    You need to delete all wordpress files as looks like you still have some files as that error is because some file trying to connect on to database.

    You should never delete public_html as that is root folder for your domain name you need to recreate that folder as soon as possible and permission should be 750

    Now that you have blank public_html you can install wordpress in that folder if you want wordpress in root.

    When you're in Fantastico, click on WordPress > New Installation. If you want your WordPress to be in root directory of your domain (example.com) leave the field empty. If you would like the WordPress to be in (example.com/wordpress) enter "wordpress" in "Install in Directory" field.

    That's all.

    Type in your desired admin username and password, the final step is to click Install WordPress button.

    And here is this in video tutorial http://youtu.be/hxDNJa3RZQ4

    Cheers,
    Emil

    @Emil Uzelac I have tried to help web_master and found out that the reason he keeps on getting error is that server will not let me assign a user to the database so looks like he has server problem as even with Fantastico he will get same error.

    if you want to delete the blog you will need to do that from server as you can not delete with in admin panel.

    Check into this plugin Downloads Box or search for any other download plugin as that will let you put links in posts or pages.

    I have the same problem.

    I go to file manager to manually delete wp-admin, wp-contents, and wp-includes. The problem is, after I deleted it, when I open either of the folders, the files I deleted keeps on coming back.

    What should I do so that I can completely delete all the contents of the folders?
