    I am trying to open the install.php file on my Mac (OS X 10.6.8)
    I'm getting the following message - please help!

    Error: PHP is not running

    WordPress requires that your web server is running PHP. Your server does not have PHP installed, or PHP is turned off.

    You need to install a server if you want wordpress installed locally. For Mac you need to install Mamp

    I downloaded this and I'm still getting the error. Even though MAMP tells me everything is running properly.

    Any other suggestions?
