#16037 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

include wp-load.php && POST = redirect to /wp-admin/install.php

When including wp-load.php in an external php-script and POSTing to that script with (for instance) a browser, redirects the browser to /wp-admin/install.php, instead of the external script getting the chance to process the POST request itself. GETing the script, functions as expected and is processed by the external script.

  • Summary changed from include wp-load.php && POST = unexpected result to include wp-load.php && POST = redirect to /wp-admin/install.php

  • Keywords reporter-feedback added; POST wp-load.php wp-admin/install.php removed

Can't reproduce neither on 3.0.3 nor on 3.1-RC1-17163.

Might be related to the specific request and/or script.

Maybe it's for multisite? See #14913 as possibly related.

I've tried a basic form sample:

/* Short and sweet */
define('WP_USE_THEMES', false);

if ( !empty($_POST) )
<form method="post">
<input name="sample" type="text">
<input type="submit" />

Can't reproduce on Multisite either.
