newbie – .php script won't run, wampserver running

    Hi,
    I am a newbie to the world of servers and scripts. I am trying to install WordPress but the install.php file does not get executed – the text is simply displayed in the browser. I have read posts on this problem and have downloaded Wampserver – when I start it I get no error messages.
    Can anyone help?
    Cheers,
    Lotte

    Sounds like PHP is not running on your server.

    Thanks Esmi. How do I check?

    the text is simply displayed in the browser

    That’s a big clue. Try creating a file called phpinfo.php that just contains:

    <?php
    phpinfo();
    ?>

    and running it from your browser.
