      Description

      There are a lot of scenarios where config.php exists but there are no database tables (one example is debian packaging).

      There are a few different options:

      • install.php should either be split into createconfig.php and installdb.php,
      • upgrade.php should handle upgrading from 0
      • some of the code in install.php should be abstracted so it can be reused by a new script.

        Gliffy Diagrams

          install.php and upgrade.php is going to be kept as is, instead I am going to add new script install_something.php that handles the installation when config.php exists and refactor the code from install.php a bit.
