I had my Craft CMS site working on my local hosting. I then moved it over to bluehost VPS. I moved the database and uploaded the files to the server. I've put the database user information in the .env file and the server location. But site comes back on domain:

Service Unavailable Our site is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.

When I try to admin in it tells me:

Service Unavailable Craft isn’t installed yet.

Any suggestions would be of great help.

  • Check if you have done composer install in your craft folder. – mrg Jun 14 '19 at 9:59

Service Unavailable Craft isn’t installed yet.

If you're getting that message, then Craft can connect to the database with the credentials you've provided, but it can't find the info table, so it thinks it's not installed.

Maybe the tablePrefix config setting is set incorrectly in your .env file?
