    Active WordPress site reverts to INSTALL menu, by philauldridge

    On a recently new WP install, I made the mistake of using an html to WP conversion plugin to bring in a large old-school website. The plugin generated over 1,000 pages in WP.

    As I was going through and deleting extraneous pages (this is the 2nd occurrence) so I only deleted pages with ‘html titles…. all of a sudden, my admin panel disappeared, and the WordPress INSTALL page popped up (asking me to select a language)

    Looking on my host, it appears my SQL file is still in place, and I don’t see anything strange in my WP directory.

    1) What condition, exactly, would trigger WordPress to think there is nothing there, although the SQL and installed files seems to be in place?
    2) Any clues on how/why merely deleting a PAGE(S) within the Admin desktop would trigger this issue?
    Thanks in advance for any assistance.
