Re: Installation Error

Forgot to add… I installed bbPress through HostMonster, and the version used is v0.9.0.4, and the PHP version used by HostMonster is 5.2.9.

Now, I just tried something suggested in another thread with the exact same problem, and I have fixed this issue.

So, here goes gm10gm10:

1. locate a file named .htaccess inside your ROOT DIRECTORY.

2. open this file to edit using the means offered to you by your hosting provider or FTP

3. locate a command line which may look like what follows (mine differed from commands in this thread:

–> the command *may* look like this: AddHandler application/x-httpd-php4 .php

4. Be mindful that variation on the code may be needed, make a copy of what was written than change it to look like this:

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .php4

5. It appears that it needs to be able to read php5 — Mind you, my host provider states PHP v. 5.2.9 so there should be not problem.

In any case, I hope this helps.

Regards, pat
