Fix for Wordpress Internal 500

Wordpress has a problem with Internal Error 500, especially when dealing with images.  People up the number of megabytes for php.ini, remove security plugins, and even remove .htaccess to fix this issue.  Chances are, this isn't the real issue. It's really the way the host is handling php, perhaps running multiple versions of php.  This simple line of code this the fix, place this on the top of your .htaccess file.  (Just like any edits you make to .htaccess file, make a backup before making this change)
#enable php5 AddType x-mapp-php5 .php 

If this isn't the case, please me know how you or your host solved your problem and what host your using.  This quick fix worked for me!
