    Hi

    Tried reinstalling Wordpress via the CPANEL and get this:
    Error: The system could not run the “/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php” install script and received the error code “1”: Error: The 'wp-config.php' file already exists.

    Hello,

    Are you using any tool to install wordpress? wp-config.php' file already exists, that means WP is already installed.
    Please check the installation dir/path.

    I think you are some wp-config.php already created with different details and you are trying to install a new wordpress on top of it? Exactly how are you installing this Wordpress on your server on the account?

    Hello,

    You will need to first remove the existing WordPress installation, or install the new instance of WordPress to a separate directory. The following document is helpful if you need to backup your existing WordPress installation before removing it:

    WordPress Backups « WordPress Codex

    Thank you.
