Install Joomla (2/3)


The installation can not be completed:

- You chose to install in the main directory of the domain refocusedministry.com, but there are conflicting filenames, therefore we can not proceed. Following filenames already exist in the main directory of the domain refocusedministry.com (path="/home/refocu5/public_html/").You must manually remove these files before proceeding with auto-installation:
robots.txt

Click on the browser's Back button to fix reported errors.

Hi jimbo,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. The error you are getting is due to there being a file in your public_html that is conflicting. You can correct this by deleting the robots.txt file and should be able to proceed with the installation.

If you not familiar with the robots.txt file, please see our article explaining what it does:

Using a robots.txt file

I hope this helps! If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.

Thanks!
