Missing db_server environment setting gives strange errors

Cc: Ticket locked: no


Found this while experimenting with lighttpd and php-fpm. If no setting is found for the database (db_server for example) an error message will be constructed before some translation-variables have been initalized. This gives errors similar to ticket #9255:

Fatal error: Failed to open translation file: modules_path/_shared/lang/English.lang in /var/www/mythweb.blizz.internal/htdocs/classes/Translate.php on line 172

I added a debug_print_backtrace() in Translate.php on line 167 and got this trace which should be helpful:

Simple bug, either we intend to fail gracefully in this scenario or it can be closed as Won't Fix.

From what I have seen with this, for some reason modules_path is not actually populating with anything useful. I manually added the path to English.lang instead of: $path = modules_path.'/'.module.'/lang/English.lang';

I added: $path = '/usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/modules/_shared/lang/English.lang';

It solved that problem, though it is a silly bug.
