I'm hosted on 275mb.com with the free plan, and i get to the install page and I've uploaded all the files BUT .htaccess becuase it tells me its not a valid file name, so what should i do; and I don't know how to change the config.php file so it can be writable by all. My FTP program is WS_FTP so thats 2 problems. 3rdl, i uploaded the rest of my files and tried it again without the .htaccess file, and each time time i fill out this form (look below) it tells me "phpBB : Critical Error Could not connect to the database". If anyone can help it's much appreciated.
