erronous php error (3 posts)

    when I try to initiate the install.php file I get an
    Error: PHP is not running

    and yet, I know php is installed and running as the test code,
    <?php
    phpinfo();
    ?>

    works as I get the phpinfo page. However, I can only get that if I rename it as index.php and place it in document root.

    If I try to run the test.php file (same code as above) it just diaplays the code.

    I'm not new to Linux , but I am new to wordpress and php, and I haven't done any apache stuff in years.

    So, if someone could give me some help here? Thanks

    hi Mark

    I think you need to have a look in your php installation on the server, regardless wordpress.

    If you don't get php fired in some folders, it must be a matter of server setup and php.

    Good luck!

    I appreciate the info, but perhaps you can be a little more specific about what I should do/look for?

    Thanks
