joomla help

Hi, wonder if anyone can help, i'm trying to put a Joomla 2.5 site on my webspace.  I'm new to this so bear with me.
As far as i know i've done all the correct things, created database, switched on MySQL and uploaded via the cshell server, ftp show's everything uploaded ok. But on opening webpage it just shows Index of? and then blank.
I am hoping it's something like the permissions need changing? or have i missed something i needed to do at PN end?
If it is permissions, any advice on where these are within the uploaded files? and how i go about changing them. Many thanks in anticipation.

Did you check the minimum requirements before attempting the install?

Re: joomla help

Have you uploaded Joomla into your ccgi webroot (/) or into its own folder? Either should work as long as you use the appropriate path to the Joomla set-up/configuration script. Did you upload the files as ASCII?
On ccgi you do need to be careful to set file permissions correctly (and ignore anything the Joomla guides suggest to the contrary). File permission requirments are detailed in the CGI Platform PHP Upgrade FAQ. That article provides a link to a forum topic here where you will find a script which helps get all file and directory permissions set correctly. The post explains how to use this script.
However, even if you sort out file locations and permissions you will still NOT be able to install Joomla 2.5 because, as Jelv says MySQL needs to be at least version 5.0.4 but sadly we still have only version 4.1.11 on ccgi. Sad
You would need to go back to Joomla version 1.7.x for MySQL compatibility.
