Description Daniel Friesen 2011-01-30 22:50:24 UTC
Looks like the installer is broken again. When having MW create a db user itself it goes and creates users with the name "{$wgDBuser}" now.

It was previously broken in a different way, I fixed it... now it's broken again... don't feel like fixing it myself right now.
