PHP not running on UniServer 5.6.16-Nano

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I'm a noobie to server stuff, but I need a local server for testing. I installed UniServer 5.6.16-Nano successfully on my USB stick. When I created a folder in the www folder and put the latest version of WordPress in it (after creating a database and user/password for the database), and tried to install WordPress at file:///D:/UniServer/www/area51/wp-dev/wp-admin/install.php I got this:

Error: PHP is not running

 

WordPress requires that your web server is running PHP. Your server does not have PHP installed, or PHP is turned off.

I'm not a PHP developer and I don't now much about Apache, etc. So any help you can give me would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

I assume when you say "successfully," you were able to see it in a browser.

 

So, NORMALLY, when I install WordPress, I unzip the wordpress directory into www/wordpress first. Then I'll rename it to whatever I need, or leave it as is. [Don't know why you need so many extra levels.]

I then use phpMyAdmin to create the new database for it. NOTE: if this step works, you're obviously running PHP.

I can then just browse to http://localhost/wordpress and the WP code is smart enough to ask for all the setup info.

 

What I suspect is that you dove into the wp-config file manually and blitzed it. Can't be sure without looking, though. :)
