Can't locate install script


This may be a stupid question but I installed the piwik folder into my web space but I don’t know what URL to type in so I can get to the install script.

For instance, the path is (I’ve swapped out my actual domain but you get the picture).

I’ve tried typing

Nothing works. The browser just wants me to Save or Open the file as if it is to be downloaded.

I’m wondering whether I am making a naive error or whether there’s something lacking on my server. The server only had php version 5.2.17 so I uploaded an .htaccess file with the following code into the piwik folder:

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php55 .php .php5 .php4 .php3

Perhaps this is the problem.

Piwik requires PHP 5.3.2 or higher.
Maybe your .htaccess is not working correct.
You could try to upload a simple script and test if that works.
