I incorrectly setup PowerCMS on the wrong database table.

I incorrectly setup PowerCMS on the wrong database table.

I incorrectly setup PowerCMS on the wrong database table. I removed all of the PowerCMS files and folder as well all the PowerCMS tables.

When I try to set-up a new PowerCMS edit instance on a new Dreamweaver .php page, PowerCMS starts a new installation but it will only let me choose the old database table not the new one I set-up for PowerCMS.

What am I doing wrong?

Power CMS Creates it's own tables when it installs. Do you mean to say that it is creating the tables in the wrong database?

before you start using Power CMS, you need to define your site and the database connection.

the database connection that you define determines the database that will be used.

if you want power CMS to use a different database, create a connection that points to that database.
