Support » Installing WordPress » “Already Installed” problem

  • So, I just got myself a domain called “”, and I thought that I would install WordPress there.
    I downloaded the .zip folder, and followed the instructions that was written down in it, but as I upload them to my FTP server (Through the program SmartFTP) and try to install it with “install.php”, it just shows me this message over and over again. Anyone know where I did go wrong?

    Also, this might help out a little:
    I’m on a Windows Vista 32bit
    Using Mozilla Firefox 3.0.6

    Please, help me solve this.

  • hi,
    you need to install or activate PHP

    I have the exact same problem, WordPress is installed in a file within a html site. Can any one tell me what Samboll means? How do you install or activate PHP? What would the process be to some one like me who has never done this before?

    ask your host if there is not a place to do it in your control panel

    I do not think it is as simple. I have the same problem. PHP is activated. I installed wordpress before on two other sites with no problems at all. But at my new site I downloaded the wp 2.7.1. could it be that I am using the same database, but different user?
    I spent a whole morning already cleaning out and reinstalling, so it could be that in the process something got fouled up. Appreciate your comment.

    After mycomment, I decided to use a new database and user name and the problem was solved. I have wordpress now installed in the root. another lesson learned.
