ok here we go:

i´ve uploaded the files freshly to my server, filled out the data and chmoded the files (via flashfxp ftp client) so that it looks something like this:
http://250kb.de/u/090409/j/8e82f8ca.jpg

mysql-date has been entered correctly as well:
http://250kb.de/u/090409/j/ffe1653e.jpg

when i start the installation i get this.....ooooops. wait:
http://250kb.de/u/090409/j/7ec7aaca.jpg

If you are having trouble with /tmp/ one option could be to create a 'silverstripe-cache' folder in your sites root folder (the one with sapphire/ cms/ etc) and give this chmod 777 and run http://yoursite.com/dev/build

Edit: It works! The name of the folder is relevant.

Thanks

yes. SilverStripe for the cache will look for a 'silverstripe-cache' folder (this is probably hardcoded in the core, may be able to override this) otherwise it will use /tmp/

You can manually define where the cache should be my defining TEMP_FOLDER in a _ss_environment.php file. The folder must exist, and lets you put the folder somewhere that you have access to outside of the site root.
