Complete Drupal install suddenly starts forwarding to install.php

Aug 2nd, 2012 | By | Category: Internet

So this was a little bit of a doozy that stumped me today but a simple retrace my steps routine quickly brought me to the source of the problem.  After following the security message in the status page to make sure my /sites/default directory wasn’t writable I chmodded it 444, assuming that would work.. Well it didn’t and the whole site redirected to install.php .. i tried chowning it to www-data and chmodding it 775 but no go.  Only bringing it back to 777 did the trick.
