Trying to get 2.3.0 working now...
I got a little further by doing as instructed per Sam. However, I am getting the the error below.
I have submitted a ticket for this to my host (reseller account). However, is there anything I can do to get past this?

Installing SilverStripe...
I am now running through the installation steps (this should take about 30 seconds)

If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation

Checking that friendly URLs work...
Friendly URLs are not working. This is most likely because mod_rewrite isn't configuredcorrectly on your site. Please check the following things in your Apache configuration; you may need to get your web host or server administrator to do this for you:
mod_rewrite is enabled
AllowOverride All is set for your directory

@ Froshi: I had same error: Fatal error: SS_DATABASE_PASSWORD must be defined in your _ss_environment.php.
and it was simply due because PHP tags was missed: <?PHP ?> in _ss_environnement.php file.
It should solve the issue.

Just had the same issue because I was following the instructions "to the T". Adding the tags got me back. Thanks, Jonas.

Well, the fix for me was as jonas posted. Just add the <?php tag. Somehow, I'd forgotten it because I didn't see it mentioned in the instructions.
