Unable to install MediaWiki via web installer if mysql user has empty password
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

In the "Connect to database" step, if I leave the password field blank, the installer refuses to continue and says Please enter a password for the new database user: root. While it may be possible to create users with no passwords, it is not secure. which is obviously wrong as we are not creating new user from this info.
