There are probably still some plugins that load wp-config.php instead of wp-load.php. Perhaps define WPINC in the else condition in wp-load.php and leave the definition in wp-settings.php?

I think we might need to go to dirname() to be fully compatible. Otherwise there's little point in including option.php from functions.php if it doesn't work out of the box in the current setup.

In [19633]:

Define WPINC in wp-load when wp-config does not exist. see #19651.

This is what I got upon wp-config.php removal:

Warning: require(/WPINC/option.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /wp-includes/functions.php on line 8


Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/WPINC/option.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/php5/lib/pear') in /wp-includes/functions.php on line 8

Not sure if this is related or if it will help you guys. Mine was purposely removed and stumbled upon this ticket by an accident.

Once I added on line 49

define( 'WPINC', 'wp-includes' );

Voila, all works great. Thanks Nacin and greuben for reporting!
