#20636 closed enhancement (fixed)

define ('RELOCATE', false) does the same thing as RELOCATE, true

It's a little unintuitive that define('RELOCATE',false) and define('RELOCATE', true) do the same thing. A viable use-case is in development, leaving the RELOCATE defined, but set to false to easily switch it to 'true' when a site is moved.

Regardless of the use case, I recommend we change the check from

if ( defined( 'RELOCATE' ) )


if ( defined( 'RELOCATE' ) && RELOCATE === true )

on line 351 of wp-login.php

Should just be able to check

if ( defined( 'RELOCATE' ) && RELOCATE )

Yes, checking for truthiness here seems proper. No need for identically here, as people will often use 1/0 as well.
