xuanyuu, welcome to the XOOPS forum!

It seems something went wrong during uninstall and some tables are left behind in the database.
You need to erase them first, before a new install will succeed.
Use eg phpMyAdin to drop this tables. You can look up the names (without prefix) in the /modules/wfdownloads/sql/mysql.sql file.

Put also PHP debug on in the preferences, so you are informed at errors during the installation.

Probably you must look into that file. The names are following the 'create table' directives.
Probably they start all with prefix_wfdownloads_ as in your example in the first post.
A tutorial on how to drop tables in phpMyAdmin is here.

Backup your site (files and database) first!

(Do you have a server with cPanel as server administration panel and/or was the phpMyAdmin part of the administration tools of your server?)
If you look in /mainfile.php, you see the definitions for XOOPS_DB_HOST and XOOPS_DB_USER. Normally XOOPS_DB_HOST is localhost.
Do these values correspond to what you see in the phpMyAdmin home page?
If not, you may be using the phpMyAdmin of the wrong server. Reconnect to the correct server with the username and password as defined in /mainfile.php .
Then you should see the database (with the name as defined by XOOPS_DB_NAME).
PS: do NOT publish the values of these definitions here.
