Can I put PHP in a HTML file?

by DavidMeade 10 replies
Hi folks,

I've a script that will only work in php and the site I want to use it on has html files. I don't want to change the html files because I want to use the script to track traffic. My traffic for this site comes from the search engines, so I think that if I change the file name it may eventually affect rankings.

Does anyone know if -
Is there a way to put php into a html file?

Or alternatively, is there a way to keep my pages in the search engines but have some sort of redirect to a php file?

    You can make HTML run PHP lines, just put the following code in your .htaccess

    AddType application/x-httpd-php .html

      This is one of those things I just not think was possible, but then again we are dealing with technology that changes daily, which is very cool, Thanks Dennis, I'll book mark this page.

        The .htaccess change will work. Just remember that all html files will now be parsed as PHP whether there is PHP code in them or not.

          don´t forget to backup all your files, especially the htacces file before any changes.

          It´s common sense, I know. But as soon as you forget 1 time ... *Caboooom Crahs Bang bup*

            the code I put in my htaccess file is,

            AddType application/x-httpd-php htm html
            AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .htm .html

            My php scripts work fine now in html and I haven't had any problems with it.

                Man, I found this out the hard way! I use HostGator, and they run PHP 5. I could not for the life of me figure out why the PHP was acting screwy. Finally I found this answer... but it was after 3 days and lots of promises to quit forever and hack up my PC with an ax.
