Description

Hello.
if i include('wp-load.php') from an external MYFILE.php .
when I open this url:

http://mysite.com/wp/MYDIR/MYFILE.php?query=bla&smt=\wp\dir\

but Wordpress is not installed yet, then from that URL, instead of:

http://mysite.com/wp/MYDIR/wp3/wp-admin/install.php
i am redirected to:
http://mysite.com/wp/MYDIR/MYFILE.php?query=bla&smt=\wp\dir/wp-admin/install.php

This is one of the many edge cases that I don't think we can/should really support. We guess the url based on the $_SERVER variables and the current __DIR__, working in when we're included from an external script feels like it's going to add further complexity that isn't actually useful in most cases.

Agreed that this is outside of the scope of WordPress to handle. If you're including wp-load.php from an external script, it's sane to assume that you're implementing some sort of custom integration that relies on WordPress already being installed.
