your server is not set to run PHP.files
is php installed at your server?
are all PHP-mimetypes etc. configured at your webspace?
Ask your hoster

consider www.eleven2.com for hosting. it's not free but great value for how much time you'll save.

This is usually the case when you do not have PHP compiled and running with apache.

i just had a reply from my isp which said set the chmod to 755 for all my files so i done that and stii no go. yes they do suport .php files. i'm starting to go bonkers

Quit possibly they do not have php configured as it is clear the web server they are using, whether it be apache or whatever is not parsing the PHP files.

http://wiki.pixelpost.org/index.php/How_to_install_Pixelpost is a pretty nice tutorial, although visual tutorials going through different admin systems such as cpanel and enism would be cool too

you dont upload to the cgi folder
all things published to the web from your account load into the www/ or public_html/ folders...either one works cause they point to the same place on the server.
the instructions to pixelpost are in the docs/ folder, or visit http://wiki.pixelpost.org for tutorials on installing it. If you are just totally ost and just cant get it working right, contact eleven2
