It has come to our attention that some customers are experiencing 500 errors on their sites. We are working on a global solution to resolve the issue across all accounts affected by it, but in the meantime, we have a temporarily solution available to you.
To resolve the issue, please use the cPanel File Manager to edit your .htaccess file located in your home folder to include the following:
Within the cPanel File Manager, be sure that you have the "show hidden files" checkbox enabled as your .htaccess file will not be seen otherwise.
# 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.
