    I have tried everything to install/get a wordpress created website working on my server. I just ran through the installation again and I keep having the same problems, every time I go to the website it never opens the page just downloads a file. Even when trying to run the install.php, instead of running it, it just downloads the file. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. Can anyone help?

    Thanks,

    Sounds like Apache is not working as expected.

    Hello,

    Yes, there could be an issue where PHP files are not properly parsed by the web-server.

    To fix this issue :

    — > Make sure the php module is loaded.

    ‘LoadModule php5_module' must be passed in httpd.conf file

    –> Make sure the proper PHP interpreter to handle files with a .php extension is mentioned. Something like,

    'AddType application/x-httpd-php .php' is given in httpd.conf
