Cannot install Joomla

I tried to install Joomla and the progress bar moved about 3% before it got stuck and hung. I waited a bit but when it became clear it was stuck I exited out and tried to re-start the install. Now it says there is already an installation present and that I need to uninstall it before I can reinstall it. It does not show me an installation that I can uninstall and when I look in the file manager I don’t see any files there related to Joomla to remove.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Solved it myself… I tried installing to a different directory instead of leaving that option blank to install in the root and that worked.
