The patch #22336-134: Move all core Drupal files under a /core folder to improve usability and upgrades leads to the following error during the installation:

'Installing: failed to set database information (database name, user, password were wrong)',

I grepped through project_issue_file_review 6.x-3.x but could find such string...

my bad, I was grepping the wrong branch, it comes from ./review/drupal/ in 6.x-2.x and 6.x-3.x. What's the relevant version used on d.o?

install.php is moved to core/install.php could explain why this is not working...

Thanks for pushing on these issues scor. I'm commenting here rather than in #22336: Move all core Drupal files under a /core folder to improve usability and upgrades since this specifically relates to testbot.

Perhaps we could include in the patch a few basic redirects (both to assist testbot and existing users)? Maybe in the patch we can set up basic 301 redirect for cron.php, install.php and update.php? Then testbot wouldn't have to work around two different locations until the move is permanently a part of core.

yes, I was thinking of the same @quicksketch, sounds like a good interim solution.

Based on the /core discussion, can we assume that this was taken care of through #1120030: Support moving of core files to core/ directory?

I think we can call it fixed, although this is a general error that happens when Drupal cannot successfully install.
