Dries's avatar

- rewrote configuration file resolving:

    * Drupal tries to locate a configuration file that matches your domain name or uses conf.php if the former failed. Note also that the configuration files got renamed from .conf to .php for security's sake on mal-configured Drupal sites.

Dries's avatar
