Deleting install.php should be sufficient, but you can delete the entire install directory if you want. None of it should be used once the installation is done.


Changing permissions is usually best done from your hosting service's File Manager. Ask your host how to use it. Some servers will allow you to change file permissions from an FTP client, but most won't now. 644 permissions may work, or (depending on how your server is configured) you may have to go to 444 (read-only for everyone).


There are two configure.php files, at /catalog/includes/ and /catalog/admin/includes/. Both should be made "read-only". Don't forget to temporarily change them back to "read-write" (usually 644) if you need to edit them or upload new copies.
