Hi All:

I\'m asking for a little help using some of Apache\'s file handling functionality. First of all, here\'s my server configuration:

Apache/1.3.27 PHP/4.1.2 on FreeBSD.

I need to set up a php file handler for file types .xyz. So, the client requests foo.xyz, and it gets piped to my php file handler and then on to the client. I tried adding this to httpd.conf:

AddHandler php-xyz-parser /home/none/www/xyz_parser.php

<FilesMatch "*.xyz">

    SetHandler php-xyz-parser


But got nothing, the .xyz file is apparently not being parsed. If anyone has dealt with this or a similar problem, I would love to hear from you!

Thanks in advance for your help.

have no knowledge on this... the apache docs had an example like this:

Action add-footer /cgi-bin/footer.pl
AddHandler add-footer .html

try with the Action, or would something like this suffice?

Regexp | Unicode Article | Letter Database

Thanks for your note.

The tricky thing about what I need to pull off is that the .xyz files are not php files, they\'re data files that I need to parse with php. So, adding the type:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .xyz

parses the data files with php, but, there\'s no php in the .xyz file. What has to happen is apache needs to hand the .xyz file to the php handler to be processed ... tricky. But, I know it can be done with perl, why not php??? :)
