Error 'hosts' file missing. Now Wordpress opens on installation when I view site

So I just reopened Local, to find a ‘hosts’ file warning on my site. So I clicked the fix button, then lauched the site. Now wordpess opens the install page. How can I cancel this and get back to my site?

Hi @tomgriffiths88,

Sorry to hear that you’re running into this issue. Typically the WordPress install page is a symptom related to your database.

If you can, take a copy of your database and site files and reimport.


Thanks Nathan. As you said was a database issue. Opened up dB admin and all tables had been dropped. Not quite sure what caused it to do that!! But just reimported and all back to normal.

Glad to hear you were able to get your site sorted out. Thanks for following up!
