    I try to install but when attempting to create a config file I get this error.

    Sorry, I can't write to the directory. You'll have to either change the permissions on your WordPress directory or create your wp-config.php manually.

    permissions:
    files 644
    folders 755

    If you are trying to create wp-config.php through the server you will need to chmod it for 666 - then change to 644 when install is completed

    After CHMODDING I'm still getting the error, I've tried to reupload the whole thing many times, cleared my cache & downloaded the whole thing just incase it was corrupt. Any other steps I could take to determine the problem?
