    Install WordPress (2/3)

    The installation can not be completed:

    - You chose to install in the main directory of the domain infoebook.biz, but there are conflicting filenames, therefore we can not proceed. Following filenames already exist in the main directory of the domain infoebook.biz (path="/home/infoeboo/public_html/").You must manually remove these files before proceeding with auto-installation:
    wp-admin
    wp-content
    wp-includes

    Click on the browser's Back button to fix reported errors.

    SOS,I want to stil create the blog site in the main directory.
    How can I manually remove these files.

    This is changing a live site.
    Note that the live site has been uninstalled,because when I make a post or comment in wordpress admin panel,and refresh to see it on my site it will give me error 404.
    This is the reason for uninstalling this live site.
    I now want to reinstall the site.
    But when I try to reinstall it I will be told thus,

    The installation can not be completed:

    - You chose to install in the main directory of the domain infoebook.biz, but there are conflicting filenames, therefore we can not proceed. Following filenames already exist in the main directory of the domain infoebook.biz (path="/home/infoeboo/public_html/").You must manually remove these files before proceeding with auto-installation:
    wp-admin
    wp-content
    wp-includes

    What will I do to manually remove these files that is preventing me from reinstalling this my site.

    Yes,I want to use wordpress site working at infoeboo/healthandwellness for now.
    But my desire early was to have this site working on the main directory.
    If in the future I decide to have another wordpress site on the main directory of the domain infoebook.biz (path="/home/infoeboo/public_html/") ,what will I do to remove these filenames before proceeding with auto-installation
    I need to know how to go about it.

    To set to root, address would be yoursite/root load wp folder here if you look via cp or FTP you have 2 wp folders one at working address and one in root remove wp in root first also you possibly have 2 DBS check these. Best to create a new db for root install
