    I have an ISPconfig (latest version 3.1.6) on Ubuntu 16.04 with MariaDb 10, PHP 7 and NGINX.
    I am trying to re-install WordPress on a specific Site called:
    This web Site previously had Wordpress installed using APS Installer. This Wordpress installation had problems so I want to delete it and install a fresh, new, clean, most current version of WordPress.
    In the Site's /web/ directory: /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web/ I deleted all files and all folders so it is now an empty folder.
    When using the ISPconfig's APS Installer to try and re-install WordPress (with lastest version: 4.8.1-244) I get this error:
    ERROR - The installation path already contains a package installation.
    Q1: How do I resolve this so I can again use APS Installer to re-install WordPress on this same, now empty Site (
    Thank you.

    It does not matter if you deleted any files manually, you have to delete the install in aps installer before you install it again.
