Summary: Installation/ Upgrade impossible when database name
                    contains hyphen
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.17-svn
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Installation

Some providers use a hyphen as part of the databasenames (e.g.

Example: dbxxxx-yyyy

The "dbxxxx-" cannot be changed by the user, it's fixed.

The mediawiki installation script breaks with an error (invalid database name).

In my case, an older mediawiki-database exists, but cannot be upgraded with the
new installer, clean install won't work either.
