Category: Website Troubleshooting
since a few days my website www.******.com has server error 500. Is there a problem with my account ? is the problem is on my side, i‘m using wordpress. Thanks for your help. best regard
The issue was that the .htaccess had the following lie of code:
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php53 .php
But for this particular server, it needed to be as follows:
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php
Making that change brought your site back up for you. It is now running as it should.
It is also recommended to stay up to date with the current version of your software. This would have prevented needing the necessary change and will also ensure you have the most secure version running. You do not want your site to be hacked by an exploit in an older version of the software.
