Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Parse .html file as php5 via .htaccess file

Postby jean01 » 12. January 2011 22:53

Maintaining a website that has two html files that are set to be parsed through php using the following .htaccess commands:

<Files index.html>
AddType application/x-httpd-php5 .html
</Files>
<Files pagename.html>
AddType application/x-httpd-php5 .html
</Files>
How do I get XAMPP to recognize these commands?

The .htaccess file itself also contains ErrorDocument commands that are behaving properly.

My install is:
XAMPP for Windows Version 1.7.3
Windows 6.0 Build 6002 Platform 2 Service Pack 2
I am running VISTA, if that matters.

Thanks!

Suggested Google Search

Xampp only uses the one version of PHP and is compiled as a Module not as a CGI.
So x-httpd-php5 is not required, use just x-httpd-php instead.

For some help with creating and correcting your .htaccess file see these links:

Please post back if you find the solution that allows you to move forward.

Thanks and HTH.

AddType application/x-httpd-php .html
works in XAMPP, thanks very much!
The web host still requires
AddType application/x-httpd-php5 .html
I checked and this is indeed because they still offer more than one version of php, as discussed in one of the links you provided:

I'm not, and likely never will be, particularly well versed in Apache so I do have these elementary issues from time to time.
Thanks very much for your help!!
