install.php HTML?

Post by XClawX » Fri Oct 01, 2004 9:45 pm

How come the "install.php" address appears in HTML mode and not normally?

I say this in my address bar "http://www.home.no/xclawx/public_html/f ... nstall.php"

Seems like it works but it appears in some weird HTML mode i think it says, dont know really :)

But is there anyway i can see this normal like it is in the "DemoDemo" tutorial on this page ??

Thanks.

Your site does not seem to have PHP installed or Enabled. I've never seen a website display the complete text of a php page before. Contact your host and ask them about their PHP setup.

Zeyr's right.
PHP isn't even installed!
You also need a database like MySQL.

You will have to find a host that has PHP and MySQL installed already.
