A good place to start is here:

A question though.... "im lost i dont know what to do and how to work with it." If you are going to ask that, then why did you install it in the first place?

Are you sure your config.sample file is located in / as your current directory seems /.
Give the full path in the command to config.sample file and also run it in debugging mode under sorted out.
