The following errors were found :

Installation cannot proceed because the following files already exist in the target folder :
Please delete these files or choose another folder.OR
Select the checkbox to overwrite all files and continue

NOTE: If I tick the checkbox that now appears with option to 'overwrite all files and continue' i get another error preventing installation...

The following errors were found :

No Cron minute was specified

Why is this happening and What do I do? In the install option beside CRON settings it says..

This script requires a CRON to work. Please specify the CRON timings. If you are unaware of it, leave it as it is!

To ask this user for more information, please first login.

SOLVED: check the box to 'overwrite all files and continue. And at the CRON job timing settings, put 0 in the minutes box. Click install and it should work, it worked for me.
