i've tried downloading the latest silverstripe numerous times from the official download link .In the tar.gz file, there's a .tar file, named silverstripe-v2.4.2.tar. and when I extract the silverstripe-v2.4.2.tar file, I only get these files and folders:

[files] Makefile
[files] favicon.ico

and in the [folder] sapphire, there's these files and folders:

and obviously, when I put the folder sapphire into my localhost folder, and tried accessing http://localhost/sapphire/ there's nothing to be seen there. I expect there should be some index.php file or something, right? I've tried downloading from the link above a few times, and the files are the same.....

You do not need an index.php as SS will attempt to use mod_rewrite for the URLs. It does appear how ever that you are missing an install.php. See the default files which you should have (as well as sapphire/ cms/) in the installer -
