Support » Installing WordPress » WordPress Saying I Need to Reinstall???

  • Ok. I’ve had my site up for months but here recently it began telling me I need to reinstall? I had some database issues with the host and server I guess but it didn’t affect my forums..yet it did with my WordPress install.

    I don’t want to reinstall it ya know. If I have to I should be able to simply do a database reinstall right?

    I need immmediate help on this thanks.

  • i recovered the database right before it started telling me this. i have my site completely on my local computer so do i have to reinstall?

    if so, can i just load up what i have on my local files?

    is this a security risk?

    i have all my files…plugins, themes etc used on my FTP still…it’s like for some reason it’s not realizing that my site is there.

    Have you run install.php like the message asks?

    If you have had database issues, you may need to re-upload the database using phpMyAdmin or a similar program. You may need to contact your host about how you do this on their system.

    thanks tom.

    had to do a Repair. everything is fixed.
