Getting error in Hadoop: Output file already exist

I am executing the basic wordcount example and it worked fine. Then I stopped the cluster and started the cluster again. Afterwards when I am executing the program I am getting the below error:

10P:/$  hadoop jar /usr/local/hadoop/share/hadoop/mapreduce/hadoop-mapreduce-examples-2.6.0.jar wordcount /test /result

When you executed your code earlier, you got the out & it is stored in the hdfs://localhost:9000/result directory.

Now when you are executing the code again, it is unable to delete that directory & write the result again.

Either you have to delete the directory & re-execute the word count program.

hdfs dfs -rm -r /result

or you have to change the output directory name(make it result1) .
