I can't install on Hostgator's cPanel + CentOS


I'm trying to install FosWiki on a Hostgator's shared hosting.

I've followed instalation guide but, at step 5, when I access bin/view url, browser shows me only script source code.

What could be happening? I've set permission on this file already, I don't know what to do.

Did you configure the bin directory to execute the scripts contained there? This is covered in step 4 of installation guide, specifically under "Method 3: Customize the .htaccess template files included in distribution" in which you modify foswiki/bin-htaccess-basic.txt and moved/rename it to foswiki/bin/.htaccess. You should be able to simply rename that file and put it in your bin directory and it should work. If this doesn't do the trick, I'd recommend looking at your apache error logs (I'm assuming hostgator gives you access to these in some manner) and report back what you find.
