Install fails if subdirectory is used
|Reported by:||ringmaster||Owned by:||matt|
The $guessurl variable set in install.php is used to set the main blog directory during the install. It is formed from the $REQUEST_URI, which presumably is the request_uri of the install page, but it seems this variable is never set (fyi-XP IIS). It's a coincidence that it works when installing to the root.
If you install WordPress to a subdirectory, all sorts of bad things happen, the first two being that the admin login form can't reference the correct CSS file and then on submission redirects to a non-existant page.
