Support » Fixing WordPress » WP-config Already Exists

  • My server recently had a crash and I had to re-upload my backups (wordpress and its database). After uploading, I overwrote my existing wordpress installation with latest version (I May have already have the newest version – but reuploaded to be sure). Now the blog appears to be fine but when I try to log into the backend, It takes me to wordpress installation page and asks me to create wp-config.php file.

    This file already exists. The installer takes me to the next step and gives me a text link to “try installing wordpress now”. When I click on that link, the next page says:

    “You appear to have already installed WordPress. To reinstall please clear your old database tables first.”

    What should I do now? Any ideas?

  • I actually followed the instructions from this post

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/319230?replies=8

    Now when I try to login to the admin area, this is the error that I get:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 30720 bytes) in /home/… /blog/wp-admin/includes/template.php on line 3366

    This line actually deals with getting post ID… Any suggestions?

    Try increasing the memory for PHP and WordPress by putting this line in your .htaccess file:

    php_value memory_limit 64M

    or this line near the top of your wp-config.php file:

    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

    or in your php.ini, if you have access:

    memory_limit = 64M;
