List of changes
I cannot get any of my acquia devdesktop 2 sites to start since setting an option on the drupal8.0.0-beta15 configuration page.
I think setting the drupal 8 configuration option for media/file-system to a new path caused my problem.
I had heard someone at the sprint mention changing a reference to C:\windows\temp to a local file location, and I expected this option was where I thought that must have been done - also believing this was where my local media files would be stored (for gallery photos, user pictures, etc.).
When I click on my local site name now, instead of executing the install (or starting the site), the screen blips and comes right back - it appears it has done nothing, but it actually creates an install.php every time (now I have 5 install.php files in my file download folder).
It seems the media/file-system has set the new value at the windows 8.1 level (as a path?), or in the registry - I am lost what to try next.
I believe no one should be able to blow away their whole environment by setting an option on the new drupal 8 configuration settings page, especially with no warnings. I have now lost my drupal 7 work in devdesktop 2 as well as drupal 8 - nothing works. I will try to restore what I had at home when I get back tomorrow (Monday, Sept 28).
I had the following sites running fine until I turned on the above drupal8.0.0-beta15 configuration option:
drupal 7.39 site (with civiCRM 4.6.8)
drupal 8.0.0 beta15.
I have totally uninstalled acquia devdesktop 2, restarted my machine, and re-installed acquia devdesktop 2.
And I still get the same result.
As an application architect and implementation person, vs. a developer (of code), I am not too sure what to include here beyond the above. But after I reset the media/file-system I lost all site execution capability.
