[resolved] problem if the DB password contains an ' (5 posts)

    attempted the automatic install and wp 3.2.1 writes the following line into my wp-config.php

    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'ovidiu's');

    which obviously resulted in a 500 server error.

    thx, I just changed my password, just wanted to bring this up so the developers are aware of it and it gets fixed.

    Wasn't sure where to post it so I did it here.

    This might be worth posting as a bug in Trac. The closest I've found to it is http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/13839

    jepp, thats very close except that wp 3.2.1 doesn't continue the install routine since it breaks when reading that unescaped apostrophe.
    I'll mark this one as closed since it seems they will have a patch for it in future releases.
