You need to empty/delete your old database.

That is, if it is only containing the sample data....
If it is containing data from a live store then why are you re-installing?

You never want to install and then reinstall. You should only upgrade existing installs or wipe the database using phpmyadmin and then install

This error usually comes when are trying to overwrite database

Note : I have only used steps 2 and 3 so think before u use

U can do the following things:
1.Take a backup of current DB
2.Drop the database
3.Try installation now (It will work)
4.Import the values of old DB

Im having this problem now and I cannot shake it.
I erased everything on the server so it was totally blank and then uploaded Opencart and when I have done the installation steps this message comes up again. I dont know how to fix this? Please help!
