So it's been a good few years since I dabbled in any of this so am out of touch.

Trying to install Wordpress onto a site. FTP'd all the files over but having trouble with the install. Something to do with not having PHP installed/enabled.

Jog my memory?

Where are you FTP uploading them? Storage alone is not enough. A popular config is LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP). Sounds like you may not have PHP installed on the web server.

Well upon some reading I've found that my host does not support PHP or MySQL in it's basic package which is what I have. Contacted them and was informed that I must pay more in order to get PHP/MySQL supported. I'm attempting to get a refund as I am not paying double the amount to get these.

Could you recommend some good hosts?
