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

  • Hi

    I tried to login into my site this morning and was redirected to wp-admin/install.php.

    I’ve repaired the database via mysql, but that hasn’t helped.

    At a total loss as to what to do next.

    Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  • See if wp-config.php exists and your database config is already there in it.

    I’ve repaired the database via mysql, but that hasn’t helped.

    Have you tried:

    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”

    Make sure you backup your database before doing any actions, just in case.

    Did you checked wp-config.php in the site’s root?

    Also check if table prefix in wp-config.php matches with what you have in database (case-sensitive).

    @tara Thanx a lot – Repair Table, thats it

    I am also facing this issue. Every thing works fine. but sometimes website redirects to install page. i have tried every thing you guys mention here.
    Checked wp-config.php
    repaired database
    increased php memory limit
    increased maximum execution time for phpmyadmin
    but still problem is there.
    From 1 week the issue is increasing. even when more people visits my website then usua, the page redirects to install page. i have deleted the install.php. I think this is a server loading time type issue. I am worried about this.
    need help plz guide.
    appreciate for ur help in advance.
