I've been having problems trying to get CiviCRM 4.7.19 working. So I thought I'd try going back to CiviCRM 4.7.17, which I had managed to get working pretty well on another site. I deactivated and deleted CiviCRM 4.7.19, deleted and recreated the MySQL database, and uploaded, extracted and activated CiviCRM 4.7.17.
When I go to Settings on the WordPress dashboard, I don't see "CiviCRM Installer".
When I try http://<my_wordpress_home>/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=civicrm-install
I get "Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page." (Even though I am logged in as a WordPress administrator in another tab.)
I'm pretty new to CiviCRM and not sure where to go from here. Thanks for any tips you can provide.
