Ah, okay except that my config file the one I changed from config-sample is from version 2.6.3, So, why would I want to re-do this, please? I think the first version, the latest was already on my server through hostgator? Then, the directions I am following for install, said to use the earlier version to assist n following the instructions to the end. Using the version shown in the instructions ..... does this make sense? Personally I do not care? In that I will probably be able to follow the instructions with latest dashboard. My real problem lay, in the fact that when starting up cPanel in hostgator I could not see a fantastico link, but allowed the wizard to install WP. Without the necessary knowledge through subsequent steps. So, if I follow your last tip; will I not get the same default message that I'm already installed? ...... thanks!
P.S. since I can;t find that Config-sample file. I"m beginning to see why you're saying to re-upload. I will wait for your response.
