    Hi,
    I got the following error when installing:
    "WordPress requires that your web server is running PHP. Your server does not have PHP installed, or PHP is turned off.".

    But I can open the test .php files when putting then under /var/www/html/HelloWorld.php and open the file of file:///var/www/html/HelloWorld.php, or through http://localhost/HelloWorld.php

    Does anybody know what's the problem? Thanks!

    P.S: Where should I put the unziped dir of wordpress?
    /var/www/html/wordpress or somewhere else?
