Installer redirect to PHP


i've installed Owncloud on a VPS running Ubuntu 16.04 and using to the package owncloud-files, as recommended, but when I go to //owncloud to run the installer/setup, it just redirects me to some PHP!

Which redirect to PHP do you receive? Can you post the output and the URL, please?

@skriesch - For some reason, redirects to

And what can you read in the browser?

Your apache server is not properly setup to execute php code and as result is simply delivering the file content to the browser.

Please read about how to configure apache and php on your distro - this is out of scope of this forum.


Ok, thanks guys. I'll try that now.
