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
// for a description of what dev mode does.
