I tried to move an existing Magento 1 instance to our development server.
- Moved .zip to FTP
- Extracted files on FTP
- Imported database (SQL)
- Changed DB credentials in app/etc/local.xml
- Changed Base URL's in database
But when I visit the site through the web browser Magento tries to reinstall and throws an error:
Error in file: "/public_html/app/code/core/Mage/Core/sql/core_setup/install-188.8.131.52.php" - SQLSTATE[42S01]: Base table or view already exists: 1050 Table 'core_resource' already exists, query was: CREATE TABLE
I expected to see the backed up website. How can I make sure the install doesn't run and the website displays without Magento trying to re-create every DB?
