I'm trying to upgrade from 2.8.1 to 2.10.1 and the installer seems to get into an infinite loop. It looks like it is having troubles with the config.php file. All the directory and file permissions are correct.
I've also noticed that the installer has identified my existing install as "Public Beta pb01", which I have no idea where it is getting that from (somewhere in the database?), though way back that was the first version of EE I installed. In my config.php file I have $config['app_version'] = "281";
After stopping the install this is the resulting config.php file:
Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks and cheers!
