Hello,

You probably do not have php installed on in the system. Ubuntu uses apt-get from the command line or software manageer from the gui to add applications. Since it sounds like you already have apache installed, to install php and the php-mod for apache from the terminal (command line) use the following commands:

sudo apt-get install php5
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

The sudo command will run the commands as root.
