I'm trying to do a clean install of 1.5 (not 1.5.1) and everytime I load the install.php, it says,
It doesn't look like you've installed WP yet. Try running install.php. And so, I followed the logical path that the PHP parser would take to get to that message.
In install.php it states the following:
The upgrade-functions.php file looks like it's the file that creates the tables in the database, however, it seems that wp-settings.php (by way of wp-config.php) asks for the user table before install.php even gets to the line which includes upgrade-functions.php to setup the tables.
So, basically, it seems the code is asking for the user table even before it's created. It doesn't make sense.
BTW, I download 1.5 from someone here on the boards as 1.5.1 is not working for clean installs.
(I hope this makes sense and I'm not confusing anyone.)
