Description Marcin Mikołajczak 2006-10-25 09:16:05 UTC
There seems to be a problem with reading the wiki database user's 
password from the config.php form into the global variable $wgDBpass, 
which stops the install with the error "ERROR:  syntax error at or near 
"NULL"" in the wiki database user creation phase. The variable is empty, 
which in combination with addQuote causes the query "CREATE USER wikiuser 
(...) PASSWORD NULL" to be executed. Didn't have time to investigate 
further, unfortunately.
Comment 1 Greg Sabino Mullane 2006-10-31 13:33:37 UTC
Thanks for the report. Looks like include/DatabasePostgres.php had the wrong var
name : change $wgDBpass to $wgDBpassword in two places within that file and you
should be good. Fixed in r17323.
