1) I uploaded all the files to my site.

2) Database details looks all good according to "install.php"

3) I click to install and get the following message:

"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
# Creating 'tutorial/_config.php'...
# Creating '.htaccess' file...

Warning: Installer::require_once(core/Core.php) [function.Installer-require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/.beijing/seoxm/ on line 616

Fatal error: Installer::require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'core/Core.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/.beijing/seoxm/ on line 616"

4) I wait 1 minute, click RELOAD, and get the same error message.

Do you know what's happening?

Thanks ;-)

Does core/Core.php exist?

I'm having exactly the same problem here.
FreeBSD 6.1
Apache 2.2.3
PHP 5.2.0
MySQL 5.0.24a

I'm observing only one core folder in Sapphire directory. And yes, there is a Core.php file in it.
P.S. I had some issues with memory_limit and allow_call_time_pass_reference. Fixed em with adding couple of lines in .htaccess file. Could that be the problem?

I had the same problem.
When I was uploading SS files I had marked option: "change to lower case letters" in my FTP program. Unfortunately file directory in php script is case sensitive.

So, check does "core/Core.php" exist (not core/core.php)...
