System Info
XOOPS Version - XOOPS 2.3.3b
PHP Version - 5.2.5
MySQL Version - 5.0.67-log
Server API Version - cgi-fcgi
OS Version - Linux

safe_mode - Off
register_globals - Off
magic_quotes_gpc - On
allow_url_fopen - On
fsockopen - On
allow_call_time_pass_reference - On

First let me say that My hosting is with Godaddy. XOOPS was installed by the hosting company. They upgraded to 2.4 and the site worked very well, I loved it, then it just stopped working. I called godaddy and they told me to roll back the installation. Which I did. I lost users and some module were no longer installed. So when I made an attempt to install i get the error "Table 'xoops__weblinks_category' already exists"

The module is weblinks and Polls I tried deleting the table in the database, but the results were the same.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Meaning? What did you actually do?

If you deleted the table then for the next installation attempt, it should not come up with the same table name.
However you have to delete the new name listed and also the former(s), which is(are) most likely recreated.

Other way is to look in the SQL file of your module and then deleting the tables that are listed in the create table clauses (by adding the prefix).

(Take always a backup before!)

To roll back the installation you simply click onto a link. I think the link sends a request to the Server Administrator (SA) and they roll the upgrade back.
