    i will be glad if some one can help. i think i did follow the steps to setup multisite or perhaps i missed it at a point. when i tried to access the new site created via the browser i get this feedback.

    'Index of /
    .ftpquota
    Apache/2.2.14 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.14 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_bwlimited/1.4 Server at http://www.dollarpips.com Port 80'

    this sounds like your WP installation is not in your root directory for your site because if it was there you would not see the Index of information.

    If you have ftp log in and look in the public_html folder - that is where WP sould be and not in a direcory under that.

    Good luck :D

    i wanted to make a clean install so i had to delete the initial installation for a fresh one. but i guess i missed it somewhere as i now have the error while trying to re- install using fantastico.

    ' Install WordPress (2/3)

    The installation can not be completed:

    - You cannot install more than one script in the root directory of a domain.

    Click on the browser's Back button to fix reported errors.'

    really don't know how to resolve this.

    i would be glad if anyone can help out.

    thank

    since the first install has been deleted, seems to me like the root directory should be free from any script.

    the public_html is completely empty, not sure but is'nt that where the root directory is?

    sorry to bother you folks just that am new to this things

    glad to recieve help

    thanks agsin

  7. Fantastico is giving you an error becasue you removed the install manually - not via Fantastico.

    Seeing as you are ok with a clean install try this:
    Download WP to your pc and unzip
    open wp-config.sample.php and make the changes in there for your site then save as wp-config.php - do not use word to do this, use notepad or something similar
    log on through ftp and make sure that the public_html folder has nothing in it
    transfer through ftp the files from wp that you downloaded - making sure that the wp-config.php file and all of those ones are put into the public_html folder - the rest will automatically be created as it is uploaded
    Then in your browser type http://MYWEBSITE.com/wp-admin/install.php where MYWEBSITE is your domain name and follow along.

    That is it in a nutshell but http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress has more details if you need it :D Good Luck!
