I have a problem when installating of version 1.5.5 Stable on Joomla free.
I have created the directory sessions and changed the document htaccess.txt to. Htaccess with php 1 inside but to no avail: the last step where I enter the server name, username, etc. . I have a blank page.
To solve this:
1] download the joomla archive
2] extract all the archive contained in a new folder on your desktop.
3] create a folder "sessions" in the same folder
4] open the htaccess file
5] by replacing its content to "php 1
6] while the continuous transfer of the file on your FTP
7] once complete rename htaccess ". Htaccess" file without extension
