Empty siteurl a database error? (2 posts)

    (also applied to version 2.9.2)

    Setting siteurl in wp_options to '' (the empty string) results in problems loading the blog/admin which is expected.

    The error message however is rather misleading
    The given errors are:
    "Error establishing a database connection"
    "One or more database tables are unavailable. The database may need to be repaired."

    Going through the repair/optimize process is successful and yields no error, which left me quite confused but I figured out the problem after further interrogating of the computer-illiterate who was fiddling with the settings =)

    Would suggest a more descriptive error for this case instead of assuming an error with the database setup.
