Support » Fixing WordPress » Should I install install.php again

  • I am running my website for moe tha 2 years now and never faced this kind of issue, however, I faced this problem only twice in last 7 days.

    When I open my website (, my website is redirected to the wordpres install.php page and shows the same options to install the wordpress as it was never installed. When I deleted the install.php from installation directory, then my website started showing some page not found errors.So I had to re-upload the install.php. This issue remains about 4-5 minutes and goes off automatically and then everythings work as normal and fine.

    I just know how to use WordPress and have no idea where can I start to troubleshoot this issue. I am not getting even a valid logical reason why this issue occurs and goes off in few minutes automatically. Please help me! I fear if somebody, while seeing the install.php options on the page installed the WordPress again, it will be worst for me.

  • Well, it sounds like one of two things (one thing). You either:
    – have lost connection to your database (deleted or the configuration file has been tempered with)

    Check to see if your database is fine. Check your WordPress configuration file for integrity.
