If you'll unzip the file you should find a Readme.html in the zip. Read that with your web browser then print the page.
You'll need to upload the contents of the zip to your server's root directory or a sub folder (your choice).
Then work your way through the printout you made earlier.

If you FTP upload them (or use a file manager if your Hosting Control Panel offers one) you should be able to 'rename' the file from file.name.default to file.name. They just want you to remove the word default and the leading '.' from the file name.
Further along in the install the 'troubleshooter app' will fuss at you if you mess up the file name and the chmod settings for the files and directories. If you'll follow along in the instructions you'll avoid a lot of 'going back to fix problems' with the troubleshooter.
That's why I recommend you print out the readme file from your browser. You can write on it and cross off or checkmark stuff.
Okay I have the file loaded and I'm looking at the readme file and it says I need to take all the default descriptions off of the existing files, and it has a list. When I try to modify those files, they do not allow me to edit them. Am I missing something? I tried to open the file by properties and it would not let me alter the name. Thank you!
