Install screen instead of login screen after update (3 posts)

    I upgraded 3 blogs to 2.7. Everything works fine. But with one of them, I cannot use the wp-sample-config.php file, because - after putting in the right information and some secret keys - I am redirected to the WP installation page. If I reinstall the old wp-config.php, I get the login page back again.

    The error sits in the new wp-config.php file, but what can it be? Any ideas anyone?

    I found it. Turns out, that I missed to set the $table_prefix correctly in the config.php file. This turned out to be the one thing different with my other installations.

    And if your blog originated before the Version 2.2 days, then DB_CHARSET and DB_COLLATE should not be in your wp-config.php file either. See Editing wp-config.php.
