Why did you do this? Did you try reading installation instructions? If
you are not ready to read manuals, you will not get anywhere with typo3.
I only joined this list 2 days ago and am a total newbie.
BTW, I did read the instructions in the install.txt file - that's what it
said to do in Step 4? The same instructions are given in both
install.txtfiles in the untarred
dummy-4.0 and typo3_src-4.0 folders. See copied and pasted text below.
Any further help appreciated. Thanks.

STEP BY STEP
1 Get the TYPO3 source package and the TYPO3 dummy package.
2 Copy the archives to the web root of your server.
(Debian default is /var/www/, SuSE default is /srv/www/)
3 Unpack the archives:
$ tar xzf typo3_src-<version>.tar.gz
$ tar xfz dummy-<version>.tar.gz
4 Rename the dummy-<version> directory to fit your needs and make sure it
is accessible by your webserver (for example by creating a virtual
host). We assume you rename the directory to cms:
$ mv dummy-<version> cms
5 Set permissions (as root): There are at least two options.
These steps will make four directories writable for the webserver:
Run these commands as root in the cms/ directory:
# chgrp -R <wwwserver> fileadmin typo3conf typo3temp uploads
# chmod -R g+w,o-rwx fileadmin typo3conf typo3temp uploads
... where <wwwserver> is the name of the group your webserver
is running as
5.b (insecure but easy to apply)
I repeat: This is insecure!
Do not use this method if you are working on a shared server!
Simply run this command:
$ chmod -R a+w fileadmin typo3conf typo3temp uploads
6 Check the symlink cms/typo3_src and make sure it points to the source
(See above: "Newbie information about the TYPO3 filesystem structure")
7 In your browser, visit
8 Follow the instructions in the 1-2-3 install tool
9 From this point, you can access the backend through
with the username "admin" and password "password".
That's it :-)
