Much of LocalSettings.sample is incorrect, obsolete, misleading, or downright
dangerous. It leads people astray when they try to do manual installs instead of
using the installer, and desperately needs to be updated.
Should it be deleted instead?
- Users don't need to generate LocalSettings.php from the sample
any more, the config script generates a LocalSettings.php
- Duplicating data (DefaultSettings.php and LocalSettings.sample)
Nothing should be duplicated between DefaultSettings.php and
LocalSettings.sample. There would, however, be duplication between the
generation code in config/index.php and LocalSettings.sample.
I've gone ahead and removed it.
