WordPress Errors With 1and1 Hosting

Occasionally WordPress experiences problems when uploading images or upgrading plugins. After some Googling I found the solution on this site.

You need to add these lines to your .htaccess file. If you don’t have the file just create one.

Options All -Indexes
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php

This will make sure that all php files are treated as php 5.

    1. Hi Christine,
      Thanks for the information. For clarification this post was not for people using 1and1’s built-in blog plugin and instead for those who have taken the hard way and installed it on their own.
