  1. thanks for the video. I made a mistake when transferring a wordpress site from my dev server to the live server. When I try to log on it tells me

    The file 'wp-config.php' already exists. If you need to reset any of the configuration items in this file, please delete it first. You may try installing now.

    Then it takes me to a page that says

    Already Installed
    You appear to have already installed WordPress. To reinstall please clear your old database tables first.

    I am not sure what to do.
