Yes, if you're having the same problem, then it may be that the program is not recognizing the php version, and the stated fix (by Scott M.) should explicitly state the version. Here's the code he added to the .htaccess file:
# Use PHP52 as default
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php52 .php
Check our other .htaccess tutorials
for information on how to make modifications to the file.
I hope this helps to resolve your problem! Please let us know if you require any further assistance.
