    _config.php file got deleted now install screen shows up Link to this post

    Hey all,

    I completed my SS site and I was updating the tutorial/_config.php and saved, however it must of failed to save and deleted the file.

    tutorial/_config.php was deleted.

    I recreated it below, however when i visit domain its hosted on, it keeps going to the install screen now instead of my site. Nothing changed except I moved it from an IP to a domain. Am I missing something?

    global $project;
    $project = 'tutorial';

    global $databaseConfig;
    $databaseConfig = array(
       "type" => "MySQLDatabase",
       "server" => "localhost",
       "username" => "xxx",
       "password" => "xxxx",
       "database" => "xxxx",

    // Sites running on the following servers will be
    // run in development mode. See
    // http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=devmode
    // for a description of what dev mode does.
