I have recently downloaded Magento onto my computer and I keep getting errors, I have checked my php version and it is 5.6.3 but I still get this error. Whoops,

it looks like you have an invalid PHP version.

Magento supports PHP 5.2.0 or newer. Find out how to install Magento using PHP-CGI as a work-around.

Can anyone advise me on how to go about fixing this any help would be much appreciated :)


Which version do you try to install ? I see 1.9 in your label, you can look at those requirements here and it doesn't seem that PHP 5.6 is supported.

  • I think you should downgrade your PHP version to a supported one – Michael R Sep 16 '15 at 15:22

Its simple . just create a virtual host and install magento in virtual host pointed directory . you will not get any error and magento will work fine .
