I had some issues with my previous version of OC and so decided to do a clean install with a newer version, 2.3.0.2. I got through the 4 installation steps and the 10 upgrades were installed successfully, but not sure where to go from there. There is no admin panel for me to log in to. If I go to www.mywebsite.com/admin it redirects back to the upgrade install page. Any ideas?

Thanks.

You wrote you have made a 'clean install'.
If true, no x upgrades will be done!
Therefore you have made not a 'clean install' - more a 'what ever ..'.

I removed all the files in my ftp manager pertaining to OC, then uploaded a new version. What do I need to do to do a clean install?

Well, everything can be found here: http://docs.opencart.com/en-gb/installation/
The video can be a bit confusing sometimes, basically these steps are important:

1. OpenCart Package from here: https://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=cms/download (use only the green button DOWNLOAD NOW to download)
2. FTP Client (to upload all OpenCart files to server)
3. Database with already created empty table

A. Unzip the package locally
B. Transfer all files from inside the upload folder to an empty folder on your server with the FTP client (root or subfolder)
C. Open the webbrowser and use: http://yourdomain (or https:// is SSL Certificate already installed) - you will be automatically redirected to the installer - if not open http://yourdomain/install.php (if a subfolder is used, add it to the URL)
D. Go through the 4 steps shown on the screen and follow instructions if displayed

Additonal steps:
I. rename config-dist.php into config.php (root folder)
II. rename config-dist.php into config.php (folder admin/)

I & II can be done before C or at least at Step 2 during the installation process (reload the page afterwards)

Uploading files via FTP with this intensity quantity of files is not the most ideal suggestion. Simply use your host file manager console and upload the ZIP file. Then, use the extract button. All you need to do afterwards is to move the sub-folders from the upload folder into the previous location of the area. Then, to rename your dist-config.php files as suggested above but also to read the install.txt file's instructions that is included in the OC ZIP file.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased counters are caused by posted redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

Are you looking to keep anything from the previous database?

My fallback is to create a fresh database and do a clean install in a sub folder and move it the to the top level once it's working.
