The problem was directory /home/ricojewellery/ is not empty! Please re-install, specifying an empty (or new) directory.

tried deleating in the manage domians section, and reinstalling, but i keep going round in circles.
please help?


do you know how to use ssh? you could delete the directory directly.
if not, you don’t have to install it in / you can install it anywhere then make that as your root directory.


WebFTP from the DreamHost panel will be able to show any hidden files in that directory. I’d even delete the favicon files as well just to be sure. They’ll get created automatically later anyhow.
