Please note that switching the used PHP version in Strato's admin panel will overwrite your .htaccess. You need to manually read the rules from .htaccess.dist after changing the PHP engine.
1&1 let you change the used PHP version to PHP5 per directory by adding
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php
to your .htaccess
Alternatively you can also change the PHP version at the control center of 1&1.
