Which part failed? The requirement script should give you details about what failed. That would then indicate what software still needs to be installed.
<php error? something likethis
Also i have told my VPS provider to reformat my VPS.
Please guide me step by step to setup a VPS from scratch.Iam using Centos 5.6.

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:

Or here are instructions for the Kloxo software you mentioned:

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.

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?

No brother.they says only that we donot give support for software in unmanaged plans.Thats y am strrugling alot.
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...
Please tell me the way by which i can install PHP extensions: MySQLi, PCRE, SPL, SimpleXML, DOM, JSON, iconv, ctype. on my VPS
Have tried and searched alot on interent but no concreate result.
My vps is on centos
