  • I need help asap please, this is my first time of trying to use wordpress i tried installing it but it comes up with codes like this: <meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”text/html; charset=utf-8″ />
    <title>Error: PHP is not running</title>
    </head>
    <body class=”wp-core-ui”>
    <h1 id=”logo”>WordPress</h1>
    <h2>Error: PHP is not running</h2>
    <p>WordPress requires that your web server is running PHP. Your server does not have PHP installed, or PHP is turned off.</p>
    </body>

    And I have XAMPP installed on my system already.

  • Hi, have you got Skype running? If so switch it off and try again.

    Hello,

    For WordPress installation requires that your web server is running PHP. Your server does not have PHP installed, or PHP is turned off and that’s why you face this issue.

    Contact your hosts. It’s a server issue.
