    I am unable to re-install WP to my Addon Domain. I did have wordpress installed to my Addon, but then I removed it via Fantastico. When I decided I to re-install Wordpress to my addon it gave me the following error:

    The installation can not be completed:

    - You chose to install in the main directory of the domain easyinfinity.com, but there are conflicting filenames, therefore we can not proceed. Following filenames already exist in the main directory of the domain easyinfinity.com (path="/home/blot6789/public_html/easyinfinity.com/").You must manually remove these files before proceeding with auto-installation:
    wp-admin
    wp-content
    wp-includes

    Click on the browser's Back button to fix reported errors.

    I assume that I didn't completely uninstall it correctly in the first place. I tried to remove the WP files mentioned above manually from the file manager but when I delete them they just come back. I got fed up and even removed my addon domain in hopes to start from scratch an re-add it. Didn't work. It seems like no matter what I do neither my addon nor the associated wp-files will dissapear from my file manager. All I want to do is Properly start over and RE-INSTALL WP to my Addon...

    Nevermind i got it...

    I just used "Legacy File Viewer" instead of the standard "File Viewer" and was able to completely and easily trash my addon and then add it again and reinstall WP. Great!
