Both a new install and an upgrade of 1.4 HEAD result in an empty user_groups
table. The only user in both cases is the default WikiSysop. The user_rights
row has only "read,edit,move,upload" rights for a new install. From memory, the
user_rights row from an upgrade had only "sysop,bureaucrat" rights.
I had the same problem in 1.4b3: I first selected a Creative Commons license,
and noticed the warning that says that all form entries will be lost after the
license selection. When I got back from the CC website I filled in the form in
the config script and didn't change the default sysop name. In the end, when I
checked manually in mysql the user table was completely empty and no sysop had
been created. Here's a wild guess: could it be that the sysop field got reset
during the CC excursion? Or is this because I didn't change the default sysop name?
1.4 doesn't have a user_groups table currently.
When you do the CC outing it clears all other fields in the install form.
1.5 on install now populates user_groups for the newly created sysop.
