Support » Fixing WordPress » Redirect to wp-admin/install.php

  • Not sure what the version is, a friend just gave me a call and asked if i have any idea what is up with his site…I am at a loss:

    Basically when you go to his site, it redirects to wp-admin/install.php. The install.php page is completely blank. This came on all of a sudden.

    Any ideas on why it could be redirecting to that? Under what conditions would this happen? I will try to get his hosting info later, but it would be nice to get some ideas so I can have someplace to start at.

  • 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”




    heh thanks for the props!

    but i still can’t seem to find what’s causing it because it’s going to happen regularly. at least for me it does. 🙁
