      Replicate AMOS string copy

      1. Visually confirm the presence of clitablesexist,install line in install/stringnames.txt
      2. Manually copy the 'clitablesexist' string from lang/en/install.php to install/lang/en/install.php

        $string['clitablesexist'] = 'Database tables already present; CLI installation cannot continue.';
        

      3. On an existing site, run the following CLI command:

        $ php admin/cli/install_database.php --agree-license --fullname="Docker" --shortname="Docker" --summary="Docker site" --adminpass="admin" --adminemail="admin@example.com"
        

      4. Confirm the installation stops with the error message "Database tables already present; CLI installation cannot continue."

    Description

      Trying to run the install_database.php CLI script, on a site that already has database present (either an existing site, or because the previous installation attempt failed) results in the following:

      $ sudo -u www-data php admin/cli/install_database.php --agree-license --fullname="Docker" --shortname="Docker" --summary="Docker site" --adminpass="admin" --adminemail="admin@example.com"
      [[clitablesexist]]
      

      Instead of the following language string:

      lang/en/install.php:$string['clitablesexist'] = 'Database tables already present; CLI installation cannot continue.';
