    I made mistake in an attempt to remove /wp from my URL. Then I remove old installation, to re install wordpress and start the website again, an error bellow came:
    Installation cannot proceed because the following files already exist in the target folder :

    .htaccess

    Please delete these files or choose another folder.OR
    Select the checkbox to overwrite all files and continue

    HOW DO I SOLVE THIS?

    Delete the .htaccess file using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.
