Fantastico Wordpress install not overwriting old files

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi everyone,

 

I'm having a problem I've never had before. I'm trying to install Wordpress using Fantastico, right onto the root directory. I want it to overwrite the old files that are currently there, but it's not. I can get into the backend of Wordpress, so I know it is installing, but for whatever reason not overwriting the files. I tried removing the index.html file, but then it just shows the hosting company's error, with a list of the other pages on the server.

 

Can anyone make any suggestions? I submitted a help ticket with the hosting company earlier this week, but haven't gotten anything yet, and wanted to get going on this for the client.

 

Thanks!

Rebecca

Rebecca, do you already have Wordpress installed but you just want the upgraded version?

 

I think you can't install Wordpress into a database that's being used by something else. It has to be empty.

Hey Guys,

 

If your trying to upgrade you just need to ftp all the new main files (.php), the wp-content & wp-admin files then go to the upgrade file/url in admin.

 

If you wish to do a completely new install you are best to to delete all files and reinstall from scratch. If you do this and want to use the same mysql database you need to either delete the files in the tables or drop all the tables from the database.

 

If wanting to use a new database just set up from your cpanel.

 

 

Cheers,

Chris
