[resolved] /wp-admin/install.php downloads file instead of running (2 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I'd be grateful for your help on this.

    I setup a mySQL database on my server and followed the 5-minute install precisely. The 5-minute install guide said that I should copy the files to the root directory which I am unable to do - but I figured that putting them in httpdocs would be fine so I did that instead (please correct me if I'm wrong).

    The next problem is that entering /wp-admin/install.php does not run the php - it just downloads the install.php file to my computer. Equally - if I visit the root URL domesticchef.co.uk, my browser downloads a file called 'download'.

    Can anybody think of a reason that this would be happening? I need some help on this.

    I fixed it. I had to login to Plesk > Select the domain > Web Hosting Settings > Enable PHP Support > Disable Safe Mode.
