    :confused::confused::confused:
    I am not really familiar with cpanel. How can I restore it to its default stage? I messed up while trying to install joomla after creating it on my localhost.

    Please help.

    Your host would be more helpful I think for this sort of problem.

    What exactly is the problem you're having?

    Urgent: Joomla 1.5 Hosting on CPanel

    I had tried to install through ftp which didnt work. SO I tried installing joomla 1.5 through fantastico. Here is the error msg I am getting.
    ------------------
    =================================
    The installation can not be completed:

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

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

    PLEASE HELP

    Fantastico is third-party

    You can try logging in via FTP and removing the files that are mentioned as being in conflict. You can also use the File Manager in cPanel if it is enabled for your account, or ask your host to remove the files for you.

    Fantastico is third-party software that is not developed by cPanel. While many users on these forums do use Fantastico, you are more likely to get assistance with Fantastico-specific issues using Netenberg's support resources.

    Via FTP or File Manager, locate the index.html and/or index.php and rename them both and save. Next, try installing it again via Fantastico.

    Side note, if it works this time, great. If you decide to remove the script, be sure to rename your files you edited, back, to protect the contents of the accounts public_html directory.
