I am trying to install modernbill for the first time.

1. Downloaded and extracted.
2. php.locale file updated with information.
3. Uploaded to my server as binary..two different times.
4. Validated my php.ini files has the correct settings.
5. I go to their web based installed URL myhost.com/modernbill/install_v4 and I get server errors.
6. I do the ONE troubleshooting tip in their manual (remote .htaccess for non-apache servers... even though I am using Apache) and I get errors about bas ASCII characters on line 26.

Please tell me there is better install support for this product someplace. It does not appear I can get to any of their forums, and their install guide has one troubleshooting tip. I hope I am missing something someplace.
