I am doing a complete re-install of wordpress (dropped tables, fresh install etc) onto a domain but once I upload all the files to the server and proceed instantly to install via my browser, it tells me there is already a wordpress installation.
Further investigation into the tables shows a user that is clearly a bot has hijacked the install and admin user before I have even had a chance to load the installation screen (literally seconds).
How do I combat this? And why do more people not have this problem, because this seems like an enormous flaw?
