    Have you run install.php yet? You need to run it to complete your WordPress installation.

    Yep … sound like it has some unfinished business in the install.

    Google chrome gives a little of an error message which gives a hint of hte path it is coming from …

    This webpage has a redirect loop.

    The webpage at has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.

    @ esmi & goodpasture:

    My site was running well for few month, but yesterday suddenly it redirects all the URL to wp-admin/install.php. This is very danger when someone runs a new installation on my site. So i renamed the file “wp-admin/install.php” to prevent access from any unwanted things until i find the right solution for this problem.

    My big thanks for all of you who care about me. Thanks a lot!

    My site redirects to wp-admin/install.php. I really dont know what causes it and why it happens…. help..

    Wow! WordPress is very amazing community!

    I have got the solution now, thanks to Whooami

    Below is the fix, just follow the instructions, very simple!

    When your website redirects to wp-admin/install.php [FIX] :

    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”

    i already do your instruction but i don’t get any broken database…but it still redirect to install.php…any solution ?
