Welcome!... Time for your first lesson: It is not good etiquette to post
a new question to an already existing thread. It makes the subject and
content uncorrelated thus confusing other list users and screwing up the
archive. If you want to ask a new question, start a new thread. Now;
write that out a hundred times.

So you want to parse a file first with the PHP engine and then with CFM
(or vice-versa). I don't know about CFM but if its just another handler,
I'm not sure you can do this. My understanding is that in order to
process a PHP file, you set the mime-type with:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

The PHP module then detects the mime-type and that's how it knows to
parse the filestream. You can only associate on mime-type for a given
extension (though many extensions can have the same mime-type) so I
don't see how you could assign one extension to two handlers.

The only thing I can think of is to have more than one extension, e.g.
myfile.cfm.php (see - but, after
reading the doc, I'm not convinced it will do what you want.
