Introducing PHP 5.3 Support

We’re happy to announce that all of our servers now support PHP 5.3 (specifically PHP 5.3.8).

There are several methods of enabling 5.3 on your account while the default is still 5.2

Method 1:
Rename your script from .php to .php53

Method 2:
Login to cPanel then click “Apache Handlers” near the bottom of the screen and put the following in the top two boxes

Handler: application/x-httpd-php53
Extension(s): php

Method 3:
Add the following to your .htaccess file:

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php53 .php

If you have any questions or find any bugs please submit a support ticket.
