I have came across the same installation issue with 2.2.1 as mentioned here (hosting server doesnt have php5 installed, but allows use of .php5 appendix)

I have created a .htaccess file with both the following inside:

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php

I am presuming when root directory is mentioned that it means the same directory as where SilverStripe is installed, or the public_html of the hosted service?

Unfortunately neither positions, changes the lack of recognition of php5,
so it doesnt allow me to proceed with installation.

Any further tips?

i don't quite remember how it was exactly, but i think i changed .htaccess in the silverstripe dir during install adding the php handler.

my current .htaccess looks like this:

Options +FollowSymLinks
AddDefaultCharset UTF-8
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php

Good stuff - can you document this in the wiki for your host?
