reinstall (3 posts)

    Hi All,

    I first installed WordPress into a folder I named "articleswp". Then I moved it to my root directory, but it no longer worked. I deleted it and reinstalled it to the root directory. Now when I go to install.php, I get a message, saying that it's already installed, but when I go to wp-login.php, I get a blank screen and it tries to redirect me to the now-non-existant folder "articleswp".

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    If you are reinstalling, then DROP the tables in your database using phpMyAdmin, or change the value of $table_prefix in your wp-config.php file to something different.

    Got it! Thanks! I chose the second option - change the value of $table_prefix in the wp-config.php file. Easy...

    One more thing... (Newbie here...) Do I still have the posts that I had written? If so, how do I get them back?
