    Attempting to install and I'm getting a fatal error. I've downloaded the latest version of the plugin, and i'm running on wordpress 3.0.0 (installing manually by dragging and dropping into the plugins folder..)

    Anything I should be doing differently?

    FYI, I'm running PHP5 as well, tried deactivating all other plugins and then reactivating with no luck.

    Any other troubleshooting suggestions?

  4. You said you are running PHP5, however that error message is a PHP version error message. Running PHP 4 or earlier is the only reason you would get that error message. There is nothing to troubleshoot. The cause is the PHP version.

    Whatever is telling you that PHP5 is active you may need to double check or you may have activated PHP5 and there is a delay in it actually being activated.

    when i set up the database from my admin panel with 1and1, (which was about a month ago) the PHP5 choice was selected, and when I check on it now it's telling me PHP5...

    any other solutions? or how do i change it to PHP5 if it already says PHP5?

  6. You will need to double check with your web host, maybe contact support. But that error message would not occur if you really were running PHP5 because it is a PHP error message related to the version... it can't use functionality that exists in PHP5 so it throws an error.

  7. With 1&1, when you set up the database, you were looking at MySQL version 5, not PHP version 5. 1&1 still uses PHP4 by default, so you need to add this single line to the .htaccess file in the root of your WordPress install.

    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

    Because you are using permalinks already, you have an .htaccess file. Just find it and add this line to the top, above the WordPress stuff.

  9. I am having this same issue as well, however, there isn't an .htaccess file in the root directory of my WP install. :( Suggestions?

    I am not a programmer, so it's probably just user error. ;-)
