Support » Localhost Installs » PHP not installed error

  • I am trying to install WordPress on my local desktop, running Windows 7 Home Premium. I have installed Xampp, and the dashboard says that PHP is activated. When I try to install WordPress, I get an error message that PHP is not installed? Any idea where I go from here?

  • Had the same problem. You have to open wp-config.php file(its in your wordpress directory) with notepad and at DB_NAME, DB_USER and DB_PASSWORD replace the following: name_here, user_here, password_here with your data.
    Save the file and it should work.


    I had the same problem too. Thank you Kadunc for the advice it worked.
