Description Thierry Vignaud 2006-07-29 15:57:18 UTC
The installer loops on trying pointing the user to the config 
page. Ie on first access, it points at eg 
localhost/mediawiki/index.php/config/index.php which then 
points to /mediawiki/index.php/config/config/index.php, ...

It's trivial for the user to strip the annoying index.php 
part but it's still annoying for the user.

I suspect this bug doesn't happen on site where "index.php/" 
doesn't appear in URLs.

It may be wrong for sites where "/index.php/" is not a substring of the URLs

This looks as though it has already been fixed: please see lines 39-44 of
includes/templates/NoLocalSettings.php in the latest svn version.
