Hi haiduong87, Welcome to the forums.

Regarding your first image ( that appears it extracted incorrectly as it is missing the mysite folder. The stable download should contain mysite which contains the _config file and the default Page.php file. That would be why his package worked. Not sure how you got that incorrect one.

The template issue ( For some reason the application cannot find the template files so check the permissions on that file to make sure your webserver can read the files and reload the page with a ?flush=all on the end of the url.

Hi Willr.

Thank you very much. I installed successfully. The first problem caused by using Winrar to unzip the package.
