When trying to access the installer via my browser, I'm prompted to Open/Save it

If, when you access the MIDAS system installer (install.pl) in your web browser, you're prompted to open/save this file, this indicates that either your web server doesn't know how to correctly handle cgi/perl scripts, or that you've not set the permissions correctly on the install file itself after uploading it to your web server.

Please check that the installer has been granted "Execute" permissions on your server (CHMOD 755), and also that your web server knows how to correctly handle cgi/perl scripts.

If your server doesn't know how to correctly handle .pl files, it may try to serve the unknown file type as a text file or as a download, instead of the correct action of "executing" it.
