Error: PHP is not running (3 posts)

    I am a total newbie in the web design world and wanted to start with WordPress. I downloaded the file and read that I need PHP and MySQL. So I downloaded and installed xampp. I pressed on the start button on Apache and MySQL and they are running. But when I follow the instructions to install WordPress and try to open wp-admin/install.php in my browser it gives me that error:
    "WordPress requires that your web server is running PHP. Your server does not have PHP installed, or PHP is turned off."
    Any ideas?

    That's a XAMPP issue; go to their forums and search under your OS: http://www.apachefriends.org/f/viewforum.php?f=34
