    After creating a data base when I want to create a configure file then when i user name 'root' then I got this messege This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at localhost what should I do now?

    I have been trying to install WordPress using Softaculous but I get this error message:

    The following errors were found : ■The directory you typed already exists! Please type in another directory name

    Secondly where can i find wp-congfig.php? I need to update it with the correct databse details. Finally do I update it after installation?

    if you have wordpress installed then wp-config.php will be where other wp- files are.

    If you do not have wordpress installed then you would have wp-config-sample.php file

    Thanks for the answer. Are wp-config.php and wp-files in the ftp?

    Oh. I found it in file manager inside the control panel.

    Still do not understand this when I am trying to install WordPress:

    The following errors were found : ■The directory you typed already exists! Please type in another directory name

    that is exactly what it means there must a directory in your root if there is one with same name you need delete or rename

    Thanks again. What really happened was I installed WordPress earlier today but by mistake I deleted the mysql database that was automatically created as a result of the installation. Since then I have been getting this error message. Is the directory found in the ftp?
