Long story short, I broke my old Magento installation by doing the beta upgrade… my database was still in tact.
I just deleted all my magento files, and re-uploaded all the files fresh.
My database is still sitting on the server.
Whenever I run Magento, it keeps trying to run the “installation” script since all the files are brand new.
How do I bypass the installation and connect it with the existing database. Is there a config.php file somewhere that I need to edit? Please advise.
