APS Installer for Wordpress creates empty configuration file
I have IPSConfig 22.214.171.124p4 with a multi-server setup on CentOS 6.6. In the APS repository I have Wordpress 4.0-29.
When I try to install Wordpress using the APS installer, after a few minutes (and runs of the cron job) I observe the following situation:
The wordpress directory is properly created and populated.
A blank database and its associated user get created. However, there are no tables in the database (I'm not sure if the APS installer is expected to create the database tables or not).
An empty configuration file, /wp-config.php is created in the Wordpress directory. This is the real problem: Wordpress expected to either have a valid configuration file (with proper DB credentals for a populated database), or not to have a config file at all - and then the user will be redirected to the setup page, which will create the configuration file and DB tables.
There are no other pending tasks in the job queue.
If I remove the empty config file, Wordpress redirects me to the installation page, then creates a config file and populates the database just as expected.
I'm raising the severity to Medium because, even though an intermittent solution is available, most people will not have the knowledge to figure it out - and to them installing Wordpress via APS installer becomes impossible.
