Install fails to do anything

I've had a number of previous versions installed before but am attempting to install the current production 1.92+ as a fresh package (copied config from prior and set permissions to temp and upload). I also setup a new database with appropriate settings in config.

When going to: /admin/install/index.php it simply says "The LimeSurvey database does exist but it seems to be empty. Please run the install script to create the necessary tables."

The install link is for this same page, so it seems to be a loop that I cannot escape. The database is not modified.

What do you suggest?

Thanks,
Nick

Are you sure that te config.php from the previous installation has all the correct settings for the new installation?

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I failed to update the directory to the new location in config.

Cheers,
Nick
