Summary0022144: Check content of configuration files

Bad contents of files like config_inc.php, custom_strings_inc.php and custom_constants.php can lead to curious problems, e.g. 0022141

This is typically caused by

  • wrong encoding (UTF-8 with BOM) or
  • content (e.g. white space before first open PHP tag, white space after not needed closing PHP tag at the end of the file)

In addition to the documentation 0022143 we should add checks at least when running admin/check/index.php, maybe also when running the upgrade scripts.

A simple check that the first byte of the files contains character "<" would cover two of the mentioned cases.

TagsNo tags attached.
