Support » Fixing WordPress » Backend displaying unformatted code

  • I have had some trouble where the plugins and themes backend pages are displaying raw code (html and php).
    The only thing that I may have done was run chmod -R g+w on the root after wordpress was installed.
    I have been checking the permissions. With what little bit I understand they seem to match a correctly functioning theme (I reinstalled the theme and it works).

    See a screenshot here.
