Make PHP interpret other files


#1

is it possible to use an .htaccess file to make the PHP interpreter parse other file extensions, like PNG for example…

(the file itself is obviously written in PHP, but I just need it to be interpreted like a normal .php file)


#2

Yes. For example, to parse .html and .htm files, just include a line similar to the following in your .htaccess file.

For PHP 4…

AddHandler php-cgi .html .htm

For PHP 5…

AddHandler php5-cgi .html .htm

Yikes! Someone by the name of GrimReapa looking to enable executable image files. Shivers

I hope Firefox handles unrecognized file content with discretion. What’s your website? I’d like to not go there.

Just Kidding. I think…

Hey, I didn’t think of it from that angle, I guess I am now an accessory :blush:

Well, if it executes as PHP, it could only do what a regular PHP file can do. If it generates an image, the code is done and the saved image isn’t going to run any php. Kinda like saving the output of a PHP page as plain static HTML.

Not sure what the purpose would be though, since you can just link to a PHP file as an image, then set the content-type accordingly–like a random image script does.

Also, I’m not sure regular images would display correctly if PHP is trying to handle them like a PHP script that has been renamed to .jpg/gif/etc. I’ll have to play around with that one of these days when I’m not too busy being lazy. :wink:
