    When I launched the wp-install.php in my browser, it is all in html codes-like...like with the tags and everything..is that how it is suppose to be? Also, I alreadie renamed the file wp-config.sample.php to wp-config.php .. what went wrong?
    <?php
    $_wp_installing = 1;
    if (!file_exists('../wp-config.php')) die("There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. Double check that you updated wp-config.sample.php with the proper database connection information and renamed it to wp-config.php.");
    require_once('../wp-config.php');

    Also, am I suppose to received the password when I launch wp-config.php in my browser? because I didn`t get any passwords...

    Did you change the CHMOD (access/read/write) permissions for the necessary files and folders on your web server?

    If you are getting code out of wp-install.php, your server does NOT support php.

    Here's a very basic idea about CHMOD. Depending on your preferences, you can either change file permissions by typing CHMOD commands and parameters via a command prompt line, or, like on my server, I can use a GUI to change the CHMOD settings. In the install documentation, there is instructions on what values to use. You will see numbers like 755 etc., and you need to set each file according to the install instructions to the correct value.
    That's the limit of my crude knowledge. Someone may have a better explanation! :)

    yeah, if you see the actual contents of a .php file, that means that the server isn't doing anything with it, just sending it down to you as if it is raw text.
    you need to contact your hosting/web provider and make sure they have PHP installed for your server/domain.

    Also make sure what you are running really is off of the webserver, and not off your local PC. Opened the Readme.html file off your harddrive (it'll start with file://C:\.....) then that could also be the problem. I've done it once or twice.

    OKAY, I'll admit it was at least three times.
