I am trying to install multisite on my live wordpress

Hello,

I am trying to install multisite on my live wordpress installation. I haven't been able to successfully do it. I have started over and I get this message.
Warning: An existing WordPress network was detected.
What should I do at this point? Are there any tables I should delete from the database and if so which ones?

Thanks.

    Hey there.

    If you've started over then I guess you don't need those old tables?

    Because right now they still exists so WP is saying "Hey, I can't park here because it's taken" :slight_smile:

    If you don't need those tables, remove them.

    If you plan to retain the data then you'll not want to run the installer and just configure your wp-config. If you only want single site then you'd need to remove the MS tables.

    I guess it really depends what you actually want to do here? Fresh install? Keep old tables?

    Take care.

Thank NAME, for their help.
