There are a few problems..
First of all, i tried this "download it again and upload it" method 
allready.. Didn't work for me.. The next thing.. My typo3 installation came 
from the zip file (downloaded it to windows xp) and uploaded it to a linux 
sever. The file wasn't opened before...

Well, i do not have a access to the command tools at the server, so i have 
just ftp access.. Is there any method to get it to work?

Thanks so far.
