it seems that installing CivicCRM as a wordpress plugin, under a specific condition causes an installation that is unusable. The resulting outcome is similar to the issue reported on ticket
I did several tests on several machines with lastest releases of wordpress and CivicCRM, using Apache/2.4.7 and PHP 5.5.21 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and CentOS 6.7 and each test got me the same result.
The condition I'm speaking is where you install wordpress.
If you install it in the document root as a main domain (eg. "/home/account/wwww"), the CivicCRM plugin install is sccessful.
Seems to be an error in the class that computes the "civic.root" parameter and seems related to the level of subdirectory nesting.
