  • You need to make sure your server is set up to execute the PHP file. Typically, this is done by a handler usually within your httpd.conf file. If you’re not comfortable working in your server environment, I would suggest contacting your hosting provider.

    Yes server is set up to execute the PHP file.
    How is about httpd.conf file ?

    Every PHP page I’ve visited on your server displays the code and does not execute it. I would suggest you call GoDaddy. Especially, since right now your wp-config file is exposed and displaying your database name and username.

    I see the link but I am not using Godaddy

    When I dig your domain I see it’s on a server that is securenet server. My apologies, I thought securenet servers were Godaddys.

    I still would contact your host to see why your server is not serving PHP pages.

    Did you ever get it fixed Eugentuk?


    To see if php is installed correctly, make a new file called test.php and place it in your root web dir, inside that file put this:

    PHP Code:


    Then visit the test.php page via a web browser. If it displays your php settings then it’s installed correctly. If it shows the code, then PHP is not set up correctly on the server.

    If I upload the file test.php ,there is the same problem because WordPress is located in Kigaliguide folder.

    But with this link it displays my php settings .

    Do you have an .htaccess file in the wordpress folder? If you do, try renaming the .htaccess file and loading the wordpress install.

    I do it but no changes

    Please can any one help me with this

    I try to instal wordpress on my local host bit is still showing me the errors

    Hi Eugentuk,

    Have you contacted your hosting provider? At this point, it sounds more of a server issue and they should be able to help you.

    I’m sorry, but I dont quite get what the problem is. First I think its strange that it shows the php tagg, and the comments…

    Now I’ll ask you to try this:

    Its to look if the php is executed. Please put this code in a new document, and execute it (dont execute in wordpress, just in another direction. If this works, try in wordpress)).

    echo "hello world"; 
    /*test comment, if showed, and there is not 'hello world' on the screen, your host doesn't support php, or there are other problems with the hosting, and contact them.
    <h1><p>Byebye world</p></h1>
    <!--If this is showed on the site, even html doesn't work. contact your host anyway... -->

    I hope this helps.

    kind regards,
