Login form constant refresh blocking login due to install.php not deleted
|Reported by:||gazouteast||Owned by:|
In WPMU the final page of install had a warning a long way down the screen, that the /wp-admin/install.php file had to be deleted or renamed before the new site could be used.
Failing to do that blocked all login attempts, and simply reloaded the login screen with no warnings to say why.
In WP 3.0 (new install) the same login behaviour occurs, but there is no warning on the final install screen to delete / rename the install.php file, nor any in the readme or codex.
Proposed - the final install screen needs the warning used in WPMU reintroduced, but in a page position where it is obvious (not 3 screen heights of scrolling down the page) - in the excitement of successfully installing a new site, it is easy to overlook such post-install details. Codex and readme also needs this stated clearly.
Preferably, the install routine should rename the install.php to something like install-done.php automatically, to prevent these problems and reduce user actions / improve the UX and reduce support threads in the forums.
