i dont have cpanel or any control panel on my server everything done on my server is Linux commands
i followed install steps and permissions but 
  • The configuration file (inc/config.php) is not writable. Please adjust the chmod permissions to allow it to be written to.

  • The cache directory (cache/) is not writable. Please adjust the chmod permissions to allow it to be written to.

bro see go on your forum by ftp then delete two folders with name config.php and settings.php inside inc folder then manually make the two files inside inc folder:
inc/settings.php
inc/config.php
give the files chmod 666 Smile

Can you send me ftp informations on PM?!
Use chown to set the correct user and group.
do as Nathan said.

as an example for the inc/config.php file, you could run this command on a *nix system where user is the username you want to own the file and group is the group that should own the file:

sudo chown user:group inc/config.php

or if you're inside of /inc:

sudo chown user:group config.php
