    Sorry, I don't know any free hosts.

    The best option for you to learn SilverStripe is to install the XAMPP package on your windows pc. The setup is pretty straight forward and it is certainly easier than to push each modified file to your server manually.

    If free hosts are a requirement for you, I suggest you build your website locally on your pc and publish only static pages to your live website. I don't think your free host server will handle much more than this.

    You could use SS 2.4.10, but the setup is not different than the 3.0 procedure. Also, SS 2.4 is not PHP 5.4 compatible.

    The overall install procedure is pretty clean... there is no rocket science here except you're very new to web development... other cmses installs are way more complicated or ask from you the same things.

    This is the right install.php... http://reliable.comze.com/install.php looks like the right URL. Unfortunately, your server has only PHP 5.2.17 installed. So you cannot install SilverStripe 3.0... Maybe you can ask your hoster... there is maybe an option to get to PHP 5.3... SilverStripe 2.4 should be run fine though -- at least for the time being.
