blank screen

whenever i view my code in the browser through sublime i just get a blank screen. i have had a look through my function.php but i cant find any errors. also i downloaded the project files final site and put them into workspaces but i just get http://port-80-vf0vdrg9pp.treehouse-app.com/ could it be a bigger problem if i cant even view the project files in the browser? i think its something to do with the php because if i view html coding the browser it works fine


function wpt_theme_styles() {

    wp_enqueue_style( 'foundation_css', get_template_directory_uri() . '/css/foundation.css' );

    wp_enqueue_style( 'normalize_css', get_template_directory_uri() . '/css/normalize.' );

    wp_enqueue_style( 'googlefont_css', 'http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Asap:400,700,400italic,700italic' );

    wp_enqueue_style( 'main_css', get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css' );

    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'wpt_theme_styles');

    function wpt_theme_js() {

        wp_enqueue_script( 'modernizr_js', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/modernizr.js','','', false);
        wp_enqueue_script( 'foundation_js', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/foundation.js' ,array('jquery'),'', true);
        wp_enqueue_script( 'main_js', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/app.js' ,array('jquery'),'',true );


    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'wpt_theme_js');

Go and checkout the tutorial in "Build a Simple PHP Application" on "Installing PHP". You need to set up a local host on your computer, since PHP is server-side, and can't be viewed like plain html in the browser.

If your apache2 (or equivalent) isn't configured with a php5 module, you won't be able to view your php files. I would check over which modules you have active, because your code is not the problem here.

hi guys i got the server up an running and did the mikes tshirt test site and it works fine. But when i try to load my wordpress site it doesnt work. i just get this error msg

"Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_header() in C:\xampp\htdocs\treehouse-portfolio\index.php on line 1"

the thing is i get this msg whether i am loading the final project files treehouse-portfolio (which is not my code) or if i load my own code.
