Magento already installed…now when you go to the main page it wants to install again
I reinstalled the cart, uploaded local.xml so it can connect to an existing database without going through the install screens, and now my menu doesnt drop down in the front or back end - plus all my media pictures disappeared. At least I still have the content of the products I already posted, but I have to go back and re configure the images for each product.
