Support » Localhost Installs » Error:PHP is not running – LAMP/Ubuntu

  • Resolved tjrose


    Hi All,
    I’m installing WordPress on my Ubuntu system but am having some trouble.

    After going through all the setup for LAMP and WordPress, I am getting the following error when attempted to access /localhost/wp-admin/install.php- “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.”

    Now, I do know PHP is running on my server and I can access my MySQL database from the CLI.

    Setting up a test.php in my root directory, I get the following result when checking – `PHP Version 5.4.9-4ubuntu2.2

    Which seems to suggest I have PHP installed correctly.

    I have a feeling there is some config line somewhere that I have missed, and the components are not talking to eachother correctly. Excuse my ignorance; I’m very new to both Linux & LAMP, but I’m trying to learn as I go.

    Any ideas what may be causing this issue?
