    I was installing wordpress and everything was going well. In the installation page I was about to copy my password so I could sign in as the "admin", but I accidently pressed the back button on my browser window: This is the message I got:
    You appear to already have WordPress installed. If you would like to reinstall please clear your old database files first.
    I tried erasing all the .php files from my server and then moving a fresh wordpress back on to my server. But that didn't help. Now I can't sign in because I don't have the password. And I can't have the password sent to my email because it doesn't have my email. If I can't fix this very soon, I'm going to have to erase wordpress from my server and use another blogging technology.
    HELP ME PLEASE!!!

    If nothing is in your tables yet, have you tried to remove the WP tables from the database?
