Set an Apache PHP File Handler

Recommended Posts

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.

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??? :)
