  • Sounds like the Database is already populated

    Did you have a timeout or a previously aborted attempt? Your wp-config.php is likely correct to get this message.

    You have 2 choices:
    1) Go to your database with phpmyadmin and drop all the tables for WP in the database and run the install.php
    or
    2) open your wp-config.php and change your table settings.
    Like so:
    go to the line where you see
    $table_prefix = 'wp_'; // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!
    and change wp_ to something like wp1_
    upload the file and run the installer.
