Just tried to “upgrade” an elgg site for an upcoming project, and found an interesting bug.
The full distro (engine + plugins) and the installation script screws up after the point where you enter your database information. There seems to be a typo in the url redirect:
tries to go to home/action/systemsetting/install
when that directory is actually actions
when I fix the typo in the URL, i get a php error
To fix, I tried the core version, which worked out just right. The downside, is I need to manually install the base plugins, but at least it works.
