If I already have a Wordpress site can I start over and modify it with FTP? It takes me to the dashboard when I login.

When I went to mywebsite.com/wp-admin after setting up the database, it went straight to my dashboard instead of the installation process. I set the original site up when I first took the "Using Wordpress Without Coding" course, but I want to continue working on it in this lesson as well. Is that possible?

You can start over but you have to delete everything from your database via php myadmin. The reason you're seeing the dashboard is because it's still connected to a db that has content.
