This does not mean the installation cannot proceed but there will be an extra step at the end of the installation process.At the end of the installation a screen displays a list of the variables and settings for the configuration.php file. These should then be copied and pasted into a new text document and saved as configuration.php

hi there
Create a completely empty file, name it as configuration.php and upload it to your joomla_root/ directory before commencing the installation. this should solve it.

In addition to the 2 above answers you can also wait until the end and use the information provided during the installation process regarding the variables and settings for the configuration.php file , and manually alter the content of the configuration.php-dist file. Once the variables have been correctly edited, change the name of this file and save it as configuration.php
