Due to recent upgrades on some of our shared servers, some customers may be experiencing 500 errors on their sites. We are working to resolve these issues across all accounts, however, you may need to apply a new fix temporarily.
To resolve the issue, please use the cPanel File Manager to edit your .htaccess file located in your home folder to include the following:
# Use PHP 5.3 as default
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php53 .php
These lines will cause your account to use PHP 5.3 instead of the server default which is PHP 5.4.
If you have any issues with this, feel free to leave a comment here on this article or to reach out to Technical Support in which we will be happy to further assist you.
