Topic : Wordpress install - Error .htaccess


Posted By: ericmagsamen on May 9, 2012, 11:51 am
When attempting to install WordPress I get this message.

The following errors were found :
  • Installation cannot proceed because the following files already exist in the target folder :
    • .htaccess

Please delete these files or choose another folder.OR
Select the checkbox to overwrite all files and continue


I removed all .htaccess, but It keeps magically returning to the \public_html folder.

Hi,

Sir does the .htaccess file exist in the directory where you are installing WordPress ?
Can you please open a support ticket with a test account details so that we can check the issue.

Hi,

You can submit a support ticket here:
http://www.softaculous.net/support

And the solution for this is to select the "Overwrite files" checkbox on the install form after you get the error and then click on install button.

Hello,

We are having the same problem, while we are trying to import a remote Wordpress site via FTP.
