Hi there,
I am trying to install the latest version and have ran into a problem. I have read other posts relating to this, but they didn't help me.

On page 2 of install, there is no option to select the database type. It doesn't have a drop-down box, the value is automatically filled in as "Using". After filling in the rest of the info on the form and continuing, I get the message "Invalid DB Type".

I tried to open the install.php file in Ultra Edit, but got only heiroglyphics (ASCII ???). I am not very computer literate, so I don't know what to do from here.

Is there another install file that I can download from somewhere?

I am trying to install on a Linux Server with PHP 5+ and SQL 4+.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks
