So, I can't get wordpress to install. In fact, despite my best efforts I can't even get the .php script to run. I am running Windows Home Server 2011, but I admit I'm a bit new at webserving & php.
So far I have:
-installed .php version 5.2.17 (reinstall tried)
-installed the Visual C++ (reinstall tried)
And now for some reason, when I run the install.php file, it only wants to either allow me to download it or open it. Clicking download saves it to my default download directory. Clicking open opens the install.php file, taking me back to the original download or open prompt. A neverending cycle.
