Well I got my previous WP with someone else and there was a lot of publicity for his stuff on it so even though he claimed it ranked better with SE I didn't want to use it.
So I deleted all the files on my website servers and when I re-installed it using your free version at wordpress.org, it told me that I already had a database and I needed to "clear it", "delete it" (I'm not sure what was the wording).
After I deleted the previous database and created a new one, I uploaded everything including a new wp-config.php file with the information for the new database.
When I try to run the install.php file it keeps telling me that the path for my database is wrong and it shows me the address of the old database host.
I looked everywhere I could think of but I can't figure out why it insists on reading the old database address.
