    After correctly uploading I get this message during the install process.

    The thing is I changed the permissions to 777 for all files inside the 'data' folder and the folder itself.

    What do I do? [Sorry I'm just very new to this, I'm sure it's obvious]

    Check the "Recurse into subdirectories" checkbox and then apply it.

    Are you sure you're in the correct directory?

    The FTP window shows public/install in the top frame, but it should be public/data.

    Have you accidentally moved the data directory?

    A default installation should look like this:

    Your installation does not seem to be correct.
    Directories and files are not in the correct locations.

    If this is a new installation I would download a fresh .zip, wipe what's on the server and start again.

    There's data/ and there's install/data/. They both need to exist and they're totally different.

    If you're doing a fresh install, make sure you download the installation package (not the upgrade package).
