Description Dan Jacobson 2007-01-25 19:15:25 UTC
In MediaWiki 1.9.0 one sees

  Installation successful! Move the config/LocalSettings.php file into
  the parent directory, then follow this link to your wiki.

OK, but don't you want to remind them _here_ (too again perhpaps) to
change the permissions? Else it will be left
-rw-rw-rw- 1 www-data www-data 4238 2007-01-25 07:32 LocalSettings.php
forever, warnings in other paragraphs notwithstanding. At least on UNIX.
I see, you Windows guys didn't expect that :-)

Added a reminder in r22846. A warning was presented to users who appeared to be using a locked-down configuration indicative of shared hosting environments, but nothing for regular users.
