    I try to install wordpress without sucess.I see this error on second step.Someone with good knowleadge please let me know.

    Install WordPress (2/3)


    The installation can not be completed:

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

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

    Are you uploading the files to the public_html directory?

    you have to remove the index.php in the public_html folder before you have to proceed for any script installation.
    you can do it by login into your cpanel account and using file manager to do this or you can use an ftp client then enter your login details then delete the index.php file and try installing the wordpress.

    are you installing the wordpress through fantastico of cpanel hosting (Linux), if so it should work fine, you should be able to login to the wordpress.

    www.yourdomain.com/wp-login.php should be the path.

    just go to file manager
    and delete index.php
    or better delete all files in your domain root
    after that use autoinstaller

    It seems you're installing it wordpress with Fantastico, first just do like Pavan said above and delete any index.php or .html you have there in the directory where you want to install it, if you still get problems I suggest you contact your hosting support and let them check that .
