How can I install WordPress if I get an error in Fantastico?
How do I install Wordpress in the root of my website? Everytime I try to install it I get an error saying only one script can be in the root directory?

Thanks for posting your question. It sounds as if you have used Fantastico to install software on the root folder of the domain. If this is the case, simply remove the installation via Fantastico. Then you'll be able to install the software again.
I hope this helps! If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
