Can't install wordpress on Root Directory : This domain is already in use.

So I have deleted my current site and want to do a fresh wordpress install.  When I try to it says:

 

"This domain is already in use. Please choose a new one or enter a directory below."

 

And it makes me install in on a sub directory but I need it on the root.

 

Any help?

Hello.

If you have deleted the site thru FTP or File Manager you will have to also delete the application that was previously installed on your website from the same place from where you install it automatically.

I hope this will help you.

Good luck.

I was having the same issue and this was the exact information I needed. Once I realized what was wrong, and got if fixed, everything went very well.
