Where does it say edit any of those files in the readme!!!

It says ::


1. Upload all php files in ASCII-mode to your server.
Give write permissions to the webserver on the configuration files.

polldata 777 (drwxrwxrwx) (directory)
- 1 666 (-rw-rw-rw)
- 2 666 (-rw-rw-rw)
- 3 666 (-rw-rw-rw)
- session.php 666 (-rw-rw-rw)

templates 777 (drwxrwxrwx) (directory)
| default 777 (drwxrwxrwx) (directory)
- comment.html 666 (-rw-rw-rw)
- display_foot.html 666 (-rw-rw-rw)
- display_head.html 666 (-rw-rw-rw)
- display_loop.html 666 (-rw-rw-rw)
- result_head.html 666 (-rw-rw-rw)
- result_foot.html 666 (-rw-rw-rw)
- result_loop.html 666 (-rw-rw-rw)
| graphic 777 (drwxrwxrwx) (directory)
- ...

include 755 (drwxr-xr-x) (directory)
- config.inc.php 666 (-rw-rw-rw)

2. Goto the admin page -> http://www.yourdomain.com/poll/admin/

Username: admin
Password: poll

and change the username and password.

That means upload files to web server then chmod then set permissions so people can view and excute them. The go to for example http://www.yourdomain.com/poll/admin/ It will then load up a page asking you to put in a username and password. Then use the default password and username and then edit the settings using the Admin Panel you just gained access to!!!

Good Luck!
