Hi Dafnir25,

The install checklist is checking to make sure that ASP Style Tags are disabled in php.ini.

This is the setting to disable them:
; Allow ASP-style <% %> tags.

I am looking around on your web host's site to see how to disable it without much luck.

I would recommend e-mailing your host to ask them how to disable it.

Hey Again :)

Se the problem in the attached image.

Okay on Dandomain the solution was as follows.

In your FTP (Filezilla) that i am using you need to show hidden files, "Server -> show hidden"

If there is not a .htacess file create one and add this line in it:
php_flag asp_tags off

Safe it a upload it in the same folder as the actual site (this case www, root folder of site)

And voila you should now be able to install it without further problems..

If not contact the host and send the picture and the possible solution mentioned here.

Good luck
