Ugh. I've been working for a few weeks on a local install of WordPress 2.6.5.
Nearly finished with the client site, I thought I should upgrade to 2.7 in-case there were any issues with plugins, etc. So I did this last PM. I didn't notice any issues then.
Tonight, I noticed that my jQuery animations were not working. I thought it might be the Lightbox plugin conflicting, so I went to disable Lightbox, and errors started cropping-up. Before I knew it, every page on the site directed me to INSTALL WORDPRESS.
My database is still intact, so I backed it up for safe keeping. Now, I'm trying to figure-out how to install WP from an existing database, and I'm not having much luck.
I tried clearing-out all of the files, except for the ones mentioned here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress_Extended -- replacing the old files with new ones, but I still get the same result: I'm directed to 'Install WordPress' at install.php.
Is there a way to clean-install WP the 'right way' and import my exported '.sql' file?
Any help would be appreciated.
