problems with installation - help needed! (4 posts)

    I've recently installed WordPress via Fantastico de Luxe from my control panel hosted by Knet hosting.It asked me which directory I wanted to install it in, so I said public_html. But what I've got now as my URL is http://www.mydomain/public_html Now that's not what I want! Looking at my root directory in Fetch I see that WordPress has actually been installed inside a sub folder called public_html inside the public_html folder. But if I try to re-install WordPress from Fantastico again but leave the directory window blank I get this message:"The installation can not be completed:
    - You cannot install more than one script in the root directory of a domain."

    Does anybody know of a way to do this properly? I'd be very grateful!

    Wina, installing via de automatic Fantastico tool is not something many people here will know something about, since I (for one) have no idea how it works and what it does. My advice would be to to a manual install using FTP or perhaps you move WP?

    It seems to me that you know have two installations. If you have FTP access (Fetch?) get rid of the wrong folder with files and you might want to check if you don't have multiple databases now and which one you don't need.
    Btw. Does Fantastico's tool allow you to install in the root?

    the script shouldhave an un-install function - use that - then re-install to root or "/".
