I need to run PHP5 scripts with a .php file extension. How do I do this?

You need to specify the following in a .htaccess file:-

SetEnv DEFAULT_PHP_VERSION 5

This means that any php file ending in .php will be executed as PHP5 rather that PHP4.

This can be set up via Control Panel > Switch PHP Version.

If this file doesn’t exist, you can create it using a normal text editor. It should be created on a per-site basis and uploaded into the folder containing your script (or simply into the public_html folder if you want it to affect site-wide).

Some PHP 4 scripts require short_open_tag to be enabled, this is off by default in php 5.

To enable this in php 5 add the following to your php5.ini file:-

short_open_tag = 1
