    You are missing a file compat.php.

    Are you installing this locally or on a server?

    uploading the files with ftp.

    i see the compat.php file there.

    also, out of curiosity, i downlaoded 2.3.3 and there are no wp folders (content, includes, admin). so i should point the install straight to install.php, right?

    your not unpacking things properly if thats the case, and that speaks to your problem.

    The error says this:

    wp-includes/compat.php
