No installation page, just a list of files

Permalink
I'm not getting an installation page after uploading all files to the server and navigating to the location. I also tried locally through XAMPP. Same result. I just see a list of files in the directory. I thought this might be a common mistake/error, but I didn't see it mentioned in another post.

Sounds like PHP is not running.

Try navigating to location/index.php instead of location only.

Thanks, index.php was not uploaded. I was using Filezilla and made sure to requeue failed uploads, but somehow it didn't transfer. Rookie mistake. Thanks for the replies.

I have learned (the hard way) not to trust FTP to reliably upload the 4000+ files. I upload a zip file and then go to my host's Control Panel -> File Manager and 'Expand' the zip. It's much, much faster and very reliable.

Thanks for the tip. I'll do that in the future.
