I assume you copied all files into that strip-directory and this is correct?

well its a folder, not an URL (url would start with http://... , path is 
maybe misleading. The problem here seems to be that this is a relative 
folder, but the installer gives you the absolute folder. I will check 
into this.

I dont know what has been tested. The general issue with failed installs 
and the necessity of going into the DB and amending things here is the 
only drawback of the config system. The problem is with the issue you 
had, that the rescue screen has to be saved somewhere in a php file. If 
the folders are wrong, you wont find that either, or the file will not 
find the db_configs to make changes.
