Wordpress Installation Error - Welcome to the famous five-minute WordPress installation process!  

   RSS

I have been working on my(this) website for a while now. Now all of a sudden this “Welcome to the famous five-minute WordPress installation process!” page pops up and it is not allowing me to access my website nor the WordPress dashboard.

The welcome page asks me to create a username, password. Now how can I access my website or my WordPress dashboard?

If you’re seeing that "5 minute installation page" then it means the database is empty, or the WordPress can’t find its database tables.

You’ll need to make sure that the database connection details in the wp-config.php file are for the correct database:  https://wordpress.org/support/article/editing-wp-config-php/#configure-database-settings

And that the table prefix matches the prefix on the database tables with content:  https://wordpress.org/support/article/editing-wp-config-php/#table_prefix

To do so, access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account’s control panel (consult your hosting provider’s documentation for specifics on these), and edit the file with a plain text editor.
