    The path to the theme doesn't look right: Have you installed WordPress? Mar 15, 2019 at 22:32

get_header() is a Wordpress template tag, so only available within Wordpress. You are using a Wordpress theme and by mistake placed it in the root folder of your site.
Place it within your WordPress installation folder in wp-content/themes/ folder. And finally activate in through dashboard by navigating to Appearance -> Themes.
