I am getting the same errors. I'm using 1.1 RC2 The code that the installer is looking for in /default/index.template.php is either wrong or missing. Yes I have mods installed. I thought that may be the problem, so I downloaded a fresh copy of smf to my computer to look at the unedited index.template.php. I still saw at least 2 errors that would stop the installer. Has anyone else encountered this?
