Getting Error after waiting for installation to complete

I downloaded newest version yesterday, went to install today, waited forever and after 10 minutes of creating tables, got this error, database obviously was empty when I started, any ideas??


There are already 348 tables in this database. Concrete must be installed in an empty database…

If you accidentally (or while waiting for something to happen in frustration) clicked twice…

You need to clear out the database before trying again.

There was an issue along these lines a few months back, so if trying again fails again, you could look back through the forums and GitHub for similar and see what the resolution was.

I’ve run into this more often than not. You’ll have to remove the database and try again. I seem to recall upping the max execution time on my server helped…

Thank you JohntheFish, I don’t think I did, but I did delete everything and start over and this time it did install!

PS. I didn’t create cranial urls when I installed, is there a way to do it now?

Did just that and it worked second time, thank you!

You can at /dashboard/system/seo/urls

Thank you , I have a question just to be sure I am asking the right thing, maybe I am not understanding what cranial urls are, currently my site address is:

I want it to be:

Is there a way to do it? Do I type in that at the place you pointed out, I don’t want to manually have to fix it?

That is not canonical URLS, though they can have a bearing.

Before setting canonical URLS or ‘remove index.php’ you need to resolve where your site is on the web server.

You could just move all the directories and files currently inside /draft-site/concrete-cms-9.1.0/ up to /draft-site/, then delete the now empty directory (check first) /draft-site/concrete-cms-9.1.0/

Or you could achieve the same by moving the entire /concrete-cms-9.1.0/ up one level to sit alongside /draft-site/, delete the now empty /draft-site/ directory, then rename /concrete-cms-9.1.0/ to /draft-site/

If your web server supports subdomains, you could alternatively create the subdomain and point that at the /draft-site/concrete-cms-9.1.0/ directory.

Tried both ways and now have empty page unless I change back to the original URL, tried a couple of times:

do you think it is cache, I did clear my browser cache a few times, using firefox, newest version.

More likely you missed something. There could be .dot files that are hidden. There could be different directory permissions.
