You are doing it wrong.

You should open it from or http://localhost/
If you are opening it from /var/www, then you are looking at the
underlying filesystem and you are bypassing the webserver that processes
all the scripts.
Obviously, you don't know what you are doing. This sounds harsh, but
that's my conclusion after reading your messages for more than a month.
Don't worry, not everybody can be an expert in everything. For example I
wouldn't know how to repair my car if it broke down. Have you considered
getting paid support? I'm sure there must be Linux consulting companies in
your area.

Also, I ask you not to misquote me if you reply, like you have misquoted
everyone else on this list. Start your reply on a new line. If you don't
do that, then I will be very disappointed in you.
