Thanks for the info, Daisuke. We'll get onto this this week.
Once we've released an update, we'll post about it on the blog, and reply to your post here.
Actually I contacted my webhost last night. Asmallorange(webhosting service - they have cool live chat support!)
They said that my shared hosting plan doesn't support one of your requirements.. fast CGI or something i can't remember.. I got to try my other webhosting.
From the looks of things your host doesn't support PHP 5. And I've accidentally put PHP 5 syntax in the installer.
Yeah, not everyone supports PHP 5 sadly - it's a pain; it's been out for 2 1/2 years already!
The server supports
* Linux 2.6
* Apache 1.3
* PHP 4.4 with Zend Optimizer
* PHP 5.1
* MySQL 4.1
* Ruby on Rails 1.1
* Perl 5.8
* Python 2.4
We're running Debian Sarge 3.1r2 with 2.6 Linux Kernel
# Apache 2.2.3
# MySQL 5.0.20
I'd say its probably the old apache support.
Drew mentioned also that some server config's don't run php5 files by default.. Try adding the following to your .htaccess file
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php
