For years, I have been using the following .htaccess for PHP to execute within HTML on Apache at GoDaddy:
AddHandler fcgid-script .html FCGIWrapper /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/php5 .html
A few days ago, only one of many websites at GoDaddy using this .htaccess started displaying Internal Server Error 500.
I then removed these two lines above from the .htaccess and replaced them with:
AddType application/x-httpd-php5 .php5 .php4 .php .php3 .php2 .phtml .htm .html
Everything then went back to normal.
What would cause this issue to arise? Why did I have to make this change for the website to go back to normal? What setting may have been changed by GoDaddy? Or is there a setting in cPanel the customer may have changed to create this issue?
