In my search to get the log-in working (

I tryed to change a line in the _config.php

Object::add_extension('Group', 'GroupDecorator');


DataObject::add_extension('Group', 'GroupDecorator');

and after a dev/build SS wants to go the install.php (which is already deleted)

How do I restore my site/db?

SS will try and redirect to install.php if it cannot connect to a database or find your database information so make sure when your editing your _config file you haven't deleted anything in it.

It might also cache the redirect to install so make sure you do a hard browser refresh.
