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.
Created attachment 2169 [details]
this simple patch fixes the looping
It may be wrong for sites where "/index.php/" is not a substring of the URLs
ie for sites using http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Rewrite_Rules
This looks as though it has already been fixed: please see lines 39-44 of
includes/templates/NoLocalSettings.php in the latest svn version.
