Support » Fixing WordPress » Re-install

  • I installed wordpress, then tried to install a premium teme through a back-up plug in. It got stuck at 65% and I had to exit. It would not let me back in with my user name and password, so I deleted the wp file. I also deleted the domain name in the fantsico file.

    There must be a trace of it somewhere because it won’t let me re-install wp. It says I can’t have more than one installation in the root directory of a file. Does any one know why it thinks something is there?

  • 1. Go to
    2. File Manager
    3. public_html… <– root directory
    4. Delete WP files
    5. reinstall



    That is correct, however, it will only work if your host has cpanel running on 2082, you may need to contact them to find out how to login to cpanel if that does not work, or else try — many of the hosts make that an alias to the correct port.

    Thanks Shekhar and Max. I can’t find a mention of 2082, however I know my way around the cpanel pretty well. I’ve already deleted the entire website name from the root directory. There is nothing there. I also went into fantastico files and deleted the name of the website.

    There has got to be a crumb left somewhere but I can’t find it.
