Currently, when you haven't installed Bugdar and browse to index.php, you get a SQL error. It would be nicer if you detected the software wasn't installed and gave a link or redirect to the install page. Also, the install directory has no index file, I would've thought that the first step in the installation would be index.php not install.php (that might just be me :P) A redirect or link would be helpful there, too.

That's my only complaint so far, and that's just becuase I was to lazy to read the install directions until after I tried that. :)

I'll look into doing something about the SQL error before installation on the main index.php. I think I can find a way to trap the first SQL query of the data cache, and if that throws an error post a link to the installer.

As for why there's no install/index.php, it's a protection measure so that you don't run the installer accidentally without thinking. This way, you need to explicitly run the installer or upgrader.

Why not just add one query to the beginning which checks if one of the necesscary tables exists, and if not, then ask them to install.

I see your point on the second though, I could see myself trying to install it multiple times. :)

Because that adds an extra query, which I really don't want.

Maybe you could add an extra bit in the error message of the first query ran saying that this may be caused becuase you haven't installed Bugdar yet.

I did the installation message, but I'm not going to put in the index.php file (for stated security reasons). Fixed in r770.
