Hello,

You can add or remove files via the "File Manager" option in cPanel, or through FTP access.

Thank you.

Hello,

You can add or remove files via the "File Manager" option in cPanel, or through FTP access.

Thank you.
In addition to @cPanelMichael's post...

  1. Navigate to your "public_html" folder (I assume its stored there!)
  2. Click "Select All"
  3. Click Compress (This will back up your web files before deleting them! Very important!)
  4. Save the .zip file wherever you like
  5. Delete all other files in "public_html" (leave cgi-bin if you need it!)
  6. Upload the wordpress files and go through the installer as normal
Hope this helps.
