Support » Installing WordPress » Install.php prompts to be downloaded

  • Resolved Samuel B


    In doing a new installation of 2.0.5, on a host called, when browsing to the wp-admin/install.php script, the browser prompts to download the file rather than execute it.

    After trying several things including putting “DirectoryIndex index.html
    index.htm index.php” in the .htaccess file and asking the host to check the
    webserver configuration, found the host was not providing enough resources
    for php.

    The solution was to put the following line in .htaccess:
    php_value memory_limit 16M

    Hope this helps someone else.
