John, sounds like the 4x4 post are at the base of the stairs to which the rails attach, correct and what kind of wood are the post made of ..should be treated wood!
The metal bracket should be galvanized metal and last pretty well (long time) before rusting out. normally the correct brackets to use will keep the wooden post off the ground about a half an inch. I am not aware of any completly water resistant floor plate best thing is to make sure whatever you use is not sitting in water a long time. Post back with more info. and maybe we can help a little better. LJ
