    I tried to install Piwik in my root directory.

    Then I went to my home page and got an install link.

    The website is still there and the content is there but I can't get to it. I get this.
    Code:
    http://cfmmusicscene.com/wp-admin/install.php
    "You appear to have already installed WordPress. To reinstall please clear your old database tables first."

    I don't want to clear my data bases!

    If I log into my dashboard all the the links are there and I can go to them. I just can't go to a direct link.

    I hit edit and the article is there but if I hit view post I get the same install.
    Code:
    http://cfmmusicscene.com/2013/01/brad-paisley-sings-the-ballad-of-honey-boo-boo/wp-admin/install.php
    I have cheap hosting and they won't do a recover so I have to get out of this myself.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!:(

    Hi,

    You should have tried to install Piwik in sub-directory. Installing it in the root directory, in which wordpress files resides will always create a problem.
    At the moment I cannot see any problem with your wordpress. It is working fine.

    I would suggest you to move the Piwik files to sub-directory and then try to install it.

    Let me know if you are facing any problem or include the steps to replicate the issue.
