Description Bill Smith 2005-05-23 20:34:53 UTC
I was attempting to install MediaWiki 1.4.4 and failing.   I finally tried
changing the mysql passwords.  Once I used to passwords that didn't contain
special characters, the install succeeded.  This included my mysql root password.

The non-alphanumeric characters in my old mysql passwords were \, ., <, and %
I'm not certain which of these were the source of the problem.  It might also
have been my Sysop's password which used to have a :

It would be adequate for this limitation to be checked in the install.  I don't
think that it necessarily needs to fixed globally.
