Today I downloaded the preinstall.php file, configured it with a password and uploaded it to my site. I then opened my browser, navigated to the page to open it up, and began the preinstall process. I was able to select the gallery2.tar.zip file as my option and the file was downloaded without any problems. I was even able to move on to the next step and unzip the file. It unzipped fine but when I moved on to the actual step where I begin the install process several items from the modules/core/ sub folder were missing. I don't know if the unzip process was interrupted behind the scenes or if the zip file the preinstaller downloaded was merely incomplete but I couldn't finish the install as it was.
I was able to fix the problem by manually going out and downloading the latest tar.zip file, renaming it to gallery2.tar.zip, uploading it to my server and then using the preinstaller to unzip it again. Again I'm not sure what the original issue was but thought you guys might want to take a peak at the preinstaller to be sure it's downloading a legit, working, zip file.
