    Edited Config.php in word pad

    Do not edit wp-config.php in anything other than a plain text editor such as NotePad.

    re edit in NotePad

    Error when opening Instal.Php reads:
    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.

    Contact your hosts and send them a copy of your error message. Perhaps you need to turn PHP on.

    You upload all the WordPress files (including the edited config file) to the root of your web server (not to the Database, which is on a different server). You have to upload all the files before you can run the install.
