Trying to install a second blog on same server (4 posts)

    I am attempting to install a second WordPress blog on my server already running a WordPress blog. I want to install a new instance of WP but use the same database. I have unzipped the WP files into a new directory. However, when I attempt to open wp-admin\install.php in a browser it gives me the following error:

    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.

    How is PHP not installed, not running and turned off if the other blog works just fine?

    That's clearly a question for your hosts. Why don't you check with them?

    Does it give the same message when you try a simple PHP test file? You might want to try asking at a server administration forum instead.
