Hi all,

I've tried searching, but I can't seem to find an exact problem like this:

I am trying to install the CMS into a live server ( The first install step where I enter the SQL database information and the admin information clears out with all green saying everything is 'OK'. The next step when I hit the installation button is where the problem arises. A page loads up saying:


"SilverStripe CMS Installation"

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


and that's IT. In the title bar it says "PHP 5 required". No errors, no movement, nothing. My server has PHP 5.2.8 installed. The .htaccess has proper I'm clueless. I've included a snapshot of the problem. This is hopefully something easy to fix, but I don't know where to begin. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated :)
