On line 825 of sodium_compat.php please use the underscore when referencing constants.php because constants.php filename begins with a underscore "_constants.php". Thank You.

By doing so the installation wizard will function properly for first time WordPress Installations. Thank you very much.

require_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/_constants.php';

Hi there, and thank you for opening a ticket!

I had a quick look, and although this is an external library (maintained at https://github.com/paragonie/sodium_compat), the file you specified does not exist in a fresh download of WordPress, where it is named without an underscore as expected.

It is possible you've got an invalid download from somewhere, but the official download from WordPress.org/download/ looks fine.

I am going to mark this as invalid as a workflow keyword, since the source code, and a fresh downloads look fine, but if you do find something indicative of something wrong from the WordPress side of it, you can of course still provide that information in this ticket and the status can be changed if need be.
