  • Have you confirmed your websever is correctly parsing php?  If not create a file name phpinfo.php and place the following in it:

    <?php phpinfo() ?>

    Place it in your webroot folder then via a browser on the server visit:


    If it parses then i suggest its a permissions issue on your WP folder, if it doesn;t parse then your php is not installed properly.
