Hi, I am new to creating websites. I have been using the Premium Builder, but wanted to experiment with more customizable options. I installed Joomla through the AMP. But I don't want to use it. Now, when i try to install anything through Fantastico, it says "You cannot install more than one script in the root directory of a domain." How do I fix this?

Hi Shortee409,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. Before you can install another third party piece of software in the same directory, you need to remove the Joomla installation. Go into Fantastico, and click on the Joomla installation, as if you were going to install it. Now, it will show you all of the Joomla installations you have. Find the one causing the issue, and click "remove".

After this, you should be able to install any other software through Fantastico you wish.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.

I don't have "Fantastico" in my cpanel, moreover I do not have WHM in my AMP!
What are you doing there?!

Hello mmdpor,

As this question and answer is quite old, Fantastico is no longer on shared servers. You may, however, go to Softaculous and click on Installations in which you will be able to remove it from there.
