Enable PHP 5.3.x On Your Hosting Account

Approx. read time : 2 min

Shared/reseller servers are compiled with php 5.2.x and 5.3.x so that anybody who needs a upgraded version of php doesn’t have to upgrade to a VPS OR dedicated server. php 5.2.x is enabled by default on our shared/reseller servers. To enable php 5.3.x create a .htaccess file under public_html and add the code below.

AddType application/x-httpd-php53 .php

This will enable php 5.3.x for your account.

If you still face the same issue, contact our support team & they will have it enabled for you.

For users with VPS hosting and dedicated servers you can compile both the versions yourself OR contact our support team & they will have it compiled for you.
