Support » Installing WordPress » WordPress install problem

  • Howdy everyone,

    I have installed WordPress 4 times now. The first two installs are working perfectly, but the last two are not working for some reason.

    When I go to one of the pages, such as, I see php code instead of the page that normally tries to send me to the install.php page.

    What am I doing wrong? I unzipped WordPress again and tried deleting it and reuploading it in case I messed something up but I can’t seem to find the problem. Any help is appreciated!

  • What’s happening there is the server is sending the PHP as plain text, instead of interpreting the PHP code.

    Are you sure the server supports PHP?

    From many posts this seems to be related to running out of php memory.
    If you have php.ini in your root, open it and edit it to increase the memory size – up to 16M or 20M – reupload.
    If you don’t see it ask your host to increase it for you.

    You might also try adding this line to the top of your .htaccess in the root 1st – some hosts allow it – some dont:
    php_value memory_limit 16M

    Yep I’m sure the server supports PHP, two other wordpress blogs I have are working fine.

    I will ask my host about increasing the PHP memory, thanks for the tip!
