    Hi I tried installing wordpress using wampserver but it tells me you already have wordpress installed, i tried deleting tables and renaming it from _wp1 to _wp3 but still tells me that you have wordpress installed. When i click back to my site, it shows the site is broken with only page
    with the following words
    Nothing Found

    Apologies, but no results were found. Perhaps searching will help find a related post.

    I have renamed the wp-config.php but it shows me
    There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started.

    No you don't. WordPress can create it as part of the installation process.

    Sounds like you are trying to install WordPress in a pre-existing database. Try creating a new one.

    i have tried creating a new one and even changing the name of the site name and wp_1 to different numebers as wp_3 all in vain.

    The site name will not make any difference. when promoted for the database name during the installation, you have to enter the new database name.
