Thank you for considering my plea for help.
For some time I operated a blog at my url at the /blog address. It was at this same address that I installed wordpress.
I now want to install word press at the root site as the full website not just the blog.
I have backed up the blog contents and thought to then delete and reinstall wordpress at the root. When I try to do this I cannot seem to delete the previous folders on the site and when I try the one-click install at the root of my site I have the fault that word press cannot install as follows:
The problem was directory /home/XXX/www.XXX.com is not empty! Please re-install, specifying an empty (or new) directory.
Any tips on how I can clear out the directory to start afresh?
All help is very welcome!
