How to fix HostGator PHP version problem to run WordPress 3.2?

As I was talking about the minimum requirement of WordPress 3.2 and GoDaddy running older version of PHP and MySQL, one of my clients informed me that HostGator is also running older version of PHP.

Oooops on HostGator too!

I contacted HostGator customer service and they informed me that by default HostGator runs PHP 5.2.15 and MySQL 5.1.52. But there is a fix to use PHP 5.2.3 on HostGator:

We currently have 5.3.5 installed on all servers. A handler for PHP 5.3 is added to our shared and reseller servers for those who wish to utilize it. In order to utilize this handler, you will need to add the following code to your .htaccess file:

AddType application/x-httpd-php53 .php

And it works! I hope this fix will make many unhappy HostGator customers happy tonight.

Good night (from London).
