Old description:

> setup-config.php step 2 is broken now that wp-db.php calls
> is_multisite(). In addition it also causes a notice.
> {{{
> Notice: Use of undefined constant WP_DEBUG - assumed 'WP_DEBUG' in
> /var/www/trunk/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 370
> Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_multisite() in /var/www/trunk
> /wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 373
> }}}
> Because setup-config.php uses wp-db.php without first including wp-
> settings.php which is where WP_DEBUG and is_multisite are defined it
> causes a notice and a fatal error.

Comment(by wpmuguru):

 Replying to [comment:23 nacin]:
 > I have questions about two variables losing global scope and whether we
 need to globalize them:
 >  - {{{$mu_plugins}}}, an array of PHP files from the must use plugins
 folder. We unset the corresponding array holding plain WP plugins to
 include. It is used nowhere in core and I highly doubt it needs to remain
 a global.
 >  - {{{$prefix}}}, as in {{{$prefix =
 $wpdb->set_prefix($table_prefix);}}} -- which is then checked for
 > I think the answer to both is no (just being cautious), in which case
 [attachment:11881.5.diff] is good on my end.
