Hi,

I'm fairly new around here but i thought i should post as i think i know your problem.

Have you tried to edit the file before you uploaded it to you webspace? This is normally due to files having been encoded in a different format, for example using MS Word rather than being saved as "Text Only".

Try re-uploading the original install file that you downloaded making sure that you didnt open this file with any other programs.

It's extremely important that these files remain as text only format but with the correct file suffix of .php or .html whatever the case may be.

Bear in mind that you need to use an editor that will handle UTF8. Geany for linux, osx or windoze, or Notepad++ (not Notepad) for windoze are recomemded.

Correct, your hosting provider is gzipping the gzipped data.
Internet Explorer can't handle that.

Did you try with a real web browser?

URL please...

It can be that your ftp client is uploading php files using the binary transfer encoding, please check your ftp client options.

no, i'm uploading the complete packages by Filezilla.
And untar/unzip them on the server.

In filezilla i forced both ASCII and Binairy but no success
Sad

Someway to download the package directly from dragonflycms.net using wget?

you can try dragonflycms.org/Wiki/id=41/

then mv /fullpath/html/* /fullpath/*
see how it goes

However if you have ssh available I highly suggest you to use a sftp client like WinSCP (for windows only).

Well, PHP5 doesn't seem the problem also.

IE opens the file directly and Firefox shows this wierd characters.

Reinstalled the machine dozens of times now, no solution sofar.

Did you try making a new directory folder on the server under the Public HTML or WWW folder?

After you do that, unzip/tar the folder on your local machine, then upload all the files inside the HTML folder to the server folder (directory) you created. Nav to: yoursiteaddress/folder/install.php

i couldn't sleep and gave it another try. Don't ask me why, but got the install page... and installed successfully.

Think it has indeed something to do with the way i did setup Apache2, but since i can't think clearly right now, i'll try to give the answer later on this. Maybe i can help others as well on this.
