Temporary URL (500 Error)

From Lunarpages Web Hosting Wiki

I get a 500 error on my PHP scripts when I use the temporary URL. There is nothing wrong with my script. Why is this happening?

Unfortunately, the temporary URL ( may not work with suPHP servers like the one you are on. This is a security measure put in place by suPHP to prevent others on the server from accessing your files. You will either need to wait until your domain name has propagated or request a temporary subdomain from Lunarpages (such as for PHP pages to function.

If you do require a temporary subdomain for testing prior to the domain name being pointed over to our DNS nameservers, please contact and provide the following:

  • Username
  • Last 4 digits of your credit card on file with us (no charges apply, this is for ownership verification)
  • Temporary subdomain name to use for testing

Once you have finished building and testing your site with the temporary subdomain, contact and we can switch the account back to your primary domain and then you can proceed to update your nameservers.
