Reinstallation using fantastica (3 posts)

    I used fantastica to install my blog and something wrong happened so I deleted it and re installed it but unfortunately, I got the following:

    The installation can not be completed:

    - You chose to install in the main directory of the domain solarenergymaterialsandsolarcells.com, but there are conflicting filenames, therefore we can not proceed. Following filenames already exist in the main directory of the domain solarenergymaterialsandsolarcells.com (path="/home/solarene/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.

    and these files can not be deleted whenever I deleted them they come right back

    what do I do?

    Try contacting your hosting provider, they can delete the files for you.

    It sounds like you either don't have the privileges to remove the files. Make sure you have the correct file permissions set so you can delete the files. There should be no reason if the file permissions are set correctly that would limit you.
