Godaddy Vs. WordPress 2.5.1 – htaccess

This is more of a reminder to myself than anything else, but WordPress was running slow as hell when I first installed it. After a couple hours and a bunch of page reloading while trying to configure everything, I ran into a 500 internal server error roadblock and couldn’t get anything to come up anymore at all.

Thanks to Google, I ran into this forum post right away, from which I gathered (without reading too deeply)– Godaddy’s PHP5 needs to be told to use itself or something, so I added this code to the .htaccess file:

AddHandler x-httpd-php5 .php
AddHandler x-httpd-php .php4

Seems to be working fine again, and it’s quick, quick, quick.

  1. Thanks for the hint, It worked fine for me too. Still a bit slow, but way better than is was.
