    You will need to either connect to your web hosting account through FTP or log in through your hosting provider's control panel if they provide one. Then navigate your way through the directories to where you installed the first WP installation. Then delete the wp-admin, wp-content and wp-includes folders and perform the reinstall.

    You can also install WordPress in another directory (i.e. if you have installed WordPress in root directory then now install your WordPress in root/<Directory_Name>).
