 I donwloaded the current version from de.wordpress.org.
 uploadet it on a shared hosting in path /var/www/user888/

 the line 39: file_exists( dirname(ABSPATH) . '/wp-config.php' ) in the
 file /wp-load.php
 echos a warning that i dont have permissions to access /var/www/wp-

 then the header redirect to install.php fails and I can't install...

 maby you can check with is_readable instead of file_exists
 (but i dont know maby this still triggers the warning)
