I am using the wordpress free server, what do i need to do? WordPress requires that your web server is running PHP. Your server does not have PHP installed, or PHP is turned off.

To clear up any confusion, WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two different entities. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ WordPress.org has complete support and documentation sites for self-hosted/installed versions of WordPress at: http://wordpress.org/support/ http://codex.wordpress.org/ In this case, I recommend contacting your hosting provider to ask why PHP isn’t running.
