NOOO!!!! wp-config issue (2 posts)

    I accidentally overwrote my wp-config file on the web server with a pre-better-wp-security version. This of course broke my site but the only thing that I could think that would be different in the config file is the database prefix, so I corrected that, but now when I try to go to my homepage it wants to run the install (I'm getting a message saying that I do not have permission to access install.php)

    HELP! What else might have changed?!?

    OMG Thankfully it was easy.

    I just started analyzing the problem again and realized that I had misplaced one of the letters in the database prefix. Once I corrected that, everything kicked in again.

    Hallelujah! :-)
