2.8.6 wp-config file missing the closing tag! (3 posts)

    I hope this is the right section to post this. I just wanted to alert the mods that in the current full download of 2.8.6, the closing tag

    ?>

    is missing from wp-config-sample.php

    When doing an automatic upgrade, this goes un-noticed because wp-config is not overwritten, however this will cause problems for new installations.

    This was pointed out on a support thread for another issue (blank screen).

    @MichaelH - I guess I've learned something new! I didn't know that a closing tag is optional in php. Sorry for the needless warning... :-(
