Hello Jacquelyn,

The message is quite literally telling you that a file exists in the installation path that you have chosen. You can choose to overwrite it if you wish to proceed. The default .htaccess file has nothing in it that you need for your installation.

If you want to manually delete it, simply login to your Cpanel, click on FILE MANAGER (select to show HIDDEN FILES or you won't see the .htaccess file) and then look in the public_html folder for the .htaccess file. It's a text file, so you can use a File Manager EDITOR option to look in it to make sure you're not disrupting any other installations - but if you have nothing else installed, then you can simply overwrite it.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
