this keeps happening by mistake in various scenarios but once such scenario is this:
I'm doing some in-depth tutorials and required to drop all tables then do a massive SQL injection via PHPMyAdmin. And then additionally, replace the entire file system at the beginning of some lessons.
but instead of a populate website i get presented w/ the installer screen and don't know why. several times now i've had to start completely over.
what exactly triggers the install page? and considering i have a populated DB and file system, what steps do i need to take, or what should i be looking at to get he site to load?
