Description

I create a new Tiki 24 from git 6188b548 · REL Closing 24.0 beta release · 16 hours ago from scratch.
I created a duplicate database to install it with previous data.
Tiki successfully detect the database connection.
The installer didn't proposed me the usual choice (update or create).
I continued to check and ended with a database emptied and reseted.

This is a critical as new admin may not understand there is a problem here and proceed.

I retried with a different database and it was the same.

Solution

Retested today after updating to 836e12ee and it seems it have been fixed.
(I emptied my database and reuse a "none-contaminated" backup)
