HELP! Site keeps redirecting to install.php! (4 posts)

    This is a site I am assigned to at work. So it is imperative that I get it back up and running!

    Yesterday I updated a plugin by manually uploading files over the current files. Something I do all the time with this plugin. So this was the only major change I have made yesterday besides changes to the content of the pages.

    This morning I go to the site and it is defaulting to the /wp-admin/install.php file. Here's the site: http://www.yourdailyanalysis.com/members/wp-admin/install.php

    I feel like it's a dB issue but the dB is still in tact. So I tried overwriting the WP files with a fresh install and going through and creating a new wp-config.php file. But I still come back to this page. When I go through and try to fill it out, it brings me back to the root of the site (which also has a WP install) and not the members directory which I am working with.

    Do any of you have any ideas of what could cause this? Your help would be greatly appreciated and probably save me my job. ;)

    P.S. I've already tried this:

    1. Login to phpMyAdmin.
    2. Select the database and click on 'Structure' tab.
    3. Right under the list of table there is a "Check All" link. Click on it to select all tables.
    4. From a "With selected:" drop-down menu right next to it, choose "Check table".

    To Repair:

    1. Login to phpMyAdmin
    2. Choose the affected database. If you only have one database, it should choose it by default so you don't need to do anything.
    3. In the main panel, you should see a list of your database tables. Check the boxes by the tables that need repair.
    4. At the bottom of the window just below the list of tables, there is a drop down menu. Choose "Repair Table"

    If you look in the options table at the siteurl and homeurl values, do they include the /members/ directory?

    Could also be that .htaccess in the /members/ directory is not properly configured. I would take a backup of that, and follow the instructions here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL#Changing_the_.htaccess_file

    Thanks for your reply. The siteurl is indeed pointing to the members directory. First thing I checked when it was being redirected to the root!

    I have escalated this issue at work so we have a dB guy looking at it now. Unfortunately it is not totally fixed yet but this topic can be closed here on this forum.

    Thanks for looking!
