PHP was Broken (16th January 2010)

All my pages were serving the PHP source code instead of parsing and processing it to serve HTML Still not completely sure how or why this was the case. Here’s the .htaccess stuff which is now working.

# Process <?php ... ?> as PHP in HTML but not <? ... ?>:
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .html .htm .php
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
php_value short_open_tag Off

# Add character encodings to Content-Type headers:
AddType 'text/css; charset=utf-8' .css
AddType 'text/html; charset=utf-8' .html .htm .phps
AddType image/ .ico
AddType application/rss+xml .rss
AddType application/x-xpinstall .xpi
AddType application/x-rar-compressed .rar

Site Surgeon

Same issue but this time I took more care to identify the cause. Here was the original .htaccess line:

# Allow <?php ... ?>:
# Addhandler application/x-httpd-php .html .htm .php

This setup must have already been present in http.conf or something! Simply uncommented it:

# Allow <?php ... ?>:
Addhandler application/x-httpd-php .html .php

At least it was a simple fix. I removed the .htm association since I only use that for static files.
