Hello Webalien, Thanks for the question! If you are using Softaculous (from an InMotion Hosting account), the installation of WordPress will not overwrite existing files or folders that have been previously uploaded to the webserver. In fact, if the files or folder are exactly the same name, then it will stop the installation indicating that file would need to be removed or renamed in order for the installation to complete. If you are using the manual installation and uploading the files into place, then you will be warned if you're going to be overwriting pre-existing files. As long as they are not files that are exactly the same name, then there shouldn't be an issue existing files. I hope this helps to answer your question! If you require any further assistance then please let us know. Regards, Arnel C.
