Your PHP is not installed or activated. You'll need to track down the location of your httpd.conf and add in the necessary directives to enable PHP. The tutorial does not mention how to do this so presumably it expects XAMPP to set this up for you.
Have a look on the PHP website on how to enable PHP in Apache, and if you get stuck, ask questions here. But please have a try and a web search on the problem first Remember Palestine
