First of all, sorry for my english...
I've an install problem too. My webserver doesn't supports changing CHMOD to 777, so the script can't write the db.php file. I filled it manually, but i couldn't finish the first install step. It's possible, manually install this script? How?
the same exact thing happened with mine. I googled for some answers and Chris was right.
anyway, there is only one field in that i am not so certain about while I was installing the program -- the localhost. I'm new to MySQL so maybe somebody who's good enough, would try to help us out about with this because I would really like to have this program on my site.
I think something should be fixed because I tried to install 3.0 and it worked.
