    why don't you just download it from wordpress.com and then ftp it and run the install manually, i've done that before on 000 and it works fine

    and you need to set up your wp-config.php file after you setup your database so write down the name of the database and the user name and password of the database.

    slow speed of ftp is due to large number of files
    if their file manager have zip extraction, upload direct zip file and then extract using file manager

    Free web000 acounts fantastic does't work! you need to upgrate.
    it work well for me manual.
    using ftp try to exchange tranfer to auto and it should be ok.
    No forget to update config.php and exchange config-new.php to config.php.
    If you need any help i help you.
