Autoupdate does not install translation files

Reported by: sirzooro Owned by: dd32
Milestone: 3.2.2 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.2.1
Component: Upgrade/Install Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


WP autoupdater does not install translation files - at least when I tried to convert my english WP install to Polish.

Steps to reproduce:

  • install WP (English version);
  • add define('WPLANG', 'pl_PL'); to wp-config.php;
  • open /wp-admin/update-core.php page and install WordPress with pl_PL translations.

For some reason updater does not create wp-content/languages directory and does not copy translation files.

As I recall, this worked in the past (for sure on some last WP 2.x versions), but cannot tell when it stopped working.

What file does it say it's installing on the upgrade/re-install process page?

Cheers, I'll take a look under the hood tomorrow and see what's going on. I have a feeling this might be caused by the locale_package variable not being set when you install the way you have.

For anyone who comes across this bug, create your wp-content/languages/ folder manually, and then perform the update, the language files will be loaded then.

#18784 was closed as a duplicate.
