I tried to install SS and I got the following error 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 'assets' folder...
# Creating 'mysite/_config.php'...
# Creating '.htaccess' file...

Warning: fopen(/www/htdocs/fly-fishing-conz/.htaccess) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/fly-fishing-conz/www/install.php on line 598
# Building database schema...

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class FieldSet in /home/fly-fishing-conz/www/sapphire/forms/FieldSet.php on line 438

Is this common? What should I do to fix it?

I already have an .htaccess file in the root directory, does that make a difference?
