ERROR The file wp-config php already exists

0 votes

I clicked on the 'Update WordPress' link in the admin dashboard of my WordPress site, and I am getting this error:

"The file 'wp-config.php' already exists. If you need to reset any of the 
configuration items in this file, please delete it first. You may try installing now."

When I try to click the "installing now" link, it seems that WordPress is installing fresh. I want to keep all of the content of my WordPress installation.

I have tried to change the name of the wp-config.php file but that didn't do anything.

Hello,

Try to display the website first on the incognito tab. If it works correctly, clear the browser cache.

Once the page refresh has been completed, the website will appear.

You can use the following shortcuts to clear the browser cache.

Windows: Ctrl + F5 Mac OS: CMD + Shift + R

Thank You!!
