Apache Handlers

Apache Handlers allow you to control how Apache will manage certain file types. When Apache recognizes a file, it has an action built in for that file type and will perform that action. If you want Apache to perform a different action, you will need to make a handler to tell Apache to perform that action.

For example, if you use a file type that requires a special service in order to run, such as a file with server-side includes that is not named with a .shtml extension, you need to tell Apache to treat these files differently.


Running HTML as PHP

It is highly recommended that you never allow HTML pages to automatically handle PHP or SHTML because this forces all of your HTML pages to be processed by the server first. Instead, please rename your files to .php or.shtml whenever possible.

The following article will provide detailed information on how to use handlers to execute PHP in your .html files:


Additional PHP Configuration

You can also manage your PHP Version using our PHP Configuration Plugin! For additional information regarding this plugin, please refer to the following article:
