    I deleted my oscommerce folders from my domain and tried to reinstall oscommerce in the domain but it keeps giving me an error and saying The database already exists. Please choose a different name.

    what should i do i just want to put oscommerce on the domain i even deleted all the files on that domain to make sure it was empty.

    delete the databases by going to cPanel, database manager. Then try again.
