Allow PHP in HTML files to execute

By default on Apache web servers, PHP code will not execute in a file that does not have a (or similar) extension. So even though you can embed PHP into a HTML file, it won’t execute when the file extension is , etc.

To change this, you can add a file to allow PHP execution.

Here are some examples depending on your system:

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

For certain hosting providers you may need to do this (adjust for PHP version too).

Addhandler application/x-httpd-php5 .html .php

Put this in a file called in the same folder as your HTML files.
