    Which part failed? The requirement script should give you details about what failed. That would then indicate what software still needs to be installed.

    Can you copy the full error or post a screenshot. Right now I can only guess.

    If it's showing the <?php tag then it sounds like PHP is not install or not working (therefore the requirement script can't run). You will need to install both PHP and MySQL on your server. This is normally handled by your web host or server person. If you are managing your own server and need help installing these services then you can follow these guides:

    http://php.net/manual/en/install.php
    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/installing.html

    Or here are instructions for the Kloxo software you mentioned:

    So
    step 1-install php
    step 2-mysql
    step 3-kloxo
    ??
    but what about php extensions???
    when to install them??

    The extensions can be installed with PHP.

    I would have assumed that a package like Kloxo would include PHP and MySQL such that it is just one installer. But I have never used that software.

    I linked to instructions. Normally your host or server person would do this for you.

    Well if the requirements script isn't running then PHP must not be working. I still want to confirm the error though. What do you see when you try to run the requirements script?

    You need to get a managed plan then. If you can't handle basic things such as installing mysql and php then what hope do you have of troubleshooting any problems in the future when the site is running?

    Just a thought...
