I have cloned a git repository containing a magento site in the same way as I normally do when joining a project. I went through the usual process of setting up database and setting everything up on my local.
This time for some reason everytime I try to view the site through my browser it redirects to the magento install page. I have only set up a few magento sites in the past and none were from scratch but I assume due to not having to install it before, I shouldn't have to this time. Any ideas what may be wrong or what file I need to modify to get this to work?
