I was beginning install of gallery - told me did not have version 5 of PHP - worked with 1and1 which had me add a file that would activate version 5 - did that and then clicked on screen to try again and received this error message

these are directions from 1and1

What do I need to consider if I want to use PHP 5?

With 1&1 Linux hosting packages you have the choice between PHP 4 and
PHP 5. To distinguish a script as PHP 5, simply name the script with the file
extension .php5.

While the PHP developers have done their utmost to ensure compatibility, we cannot
guarantee that PHP 4 scripts will function 100% correctly under PHP 5.

Please note that in contrast to PHP 4, the default for the variable RegisterGlobals and allow_url_fopen is "off".

By default Apache uses PHP 4 for .php extension. If you don't want to rename all your
scripts to .php5 you can do the following:
Create a .htaccess file and place the following line AddType x-mapp-php5 .php in it.

This will tell Apache to use PHP 5 instead of PHP 4 for the extension .php in the
directory the .htaccess is placed and all sub-directories under it.

try creating a php info page.

Create a blank php page, name it phpinfo.php
add the following code:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

and try to view that in the browser.

If you can only view that page by removing the .htaccess file, it sounds like there is a problem with the .htaccess file.

the only code in the htaccess file should be the one line:

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

and it should be saved to the web root on your host server.
