i've just wanted to install wordpress, i've already changed the wp-confing-sample.php to wp-config.php with information about my website (host, database and so on) and put all the files on the server through FTP, i didn't create any new folder, just put the 'wordpress' file next to index.html
now i wanted to install wordpress, i wrote the adress www.mysitename.zxq.net/wp-admin/install.php but it didn't work as well as www.mysitename.zxq.net
the only thing it showed was:

what should i do to start installing wordpress?
Hi Ane, Did you double check your details? was the source correct because sometimes a user didn't notice some typographic mistake or mistyped a word. if all of your details are correct please follow this manual instructions that i have used when i was a beginner.
Download and unzip the WordPress package if you haven't already.
Create a database for WordPress on your web server, as well as a MySQL user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.
Rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php.
Open wp-config.php in a text editor and fill in your database details as explained in Editing wp-config.php to generate and use your secret key password.
Upload the WordPress files in the desired location on your web server:
If you want to integrate WordPress into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/)
, move or upload all contents of the unzipped WordPress directory (but excluding the directory itself) into the root directory of your web server.
If you want to have your WordPress installation in its own subdirectory on your web site (e.g. http://example.com/blog/)
, create the blog directory on your server and upload WordPress to the directory via FTP.
Run the WordPress installation script by accessing wp-admin/install.php in a web browser.
If you installed WordPress in the root directory, you should visit: http://example.com/wp-admin/install.php
If you installed WordPress in its own subdirectory called blog, for example, you should visit: http://example.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php
