Subject [users@httpd] Interpreting .htm extensions as .php extensions
Date Sun, 22 Aug 2004 04:40:55 GMT
I have a huge website made with Microsoft Frontpage,
with every page ending in a .htm extension. I copied
it and am splitting it into several smaller websites,
designed with Dreamweaver and PHP and hosted on Linux

In fact, I moved my original site to a Linux server,
too - which turned into a disaster. I didn't realize
that Linux servers are case sensitive.

Anyway, I think I remember hearing that you don't have
to give a web page a .php extension to use PHP on it;
you can set up something in Apache so that .htm
extensions are interpreted as .php.

Is this true? If so, can someone tell me what it's
called and direct me to a tutorial? Is it pretty
advanced, or is it something a newbie can handle?

I'm going to eventually shut this website down or
completely transform it. But it would help the
transition process if I could use PHP in managing

Also, do you know if such a set up would conflict with
FrontPage extensions? This site makes extensive use of
Microsoft's webbots, or whatever they're called, which
require FrontPage extensions. So I wondered if I could
continue using MS webbots side by side with any PHP
functions I want to add.
