PHP on html page

 11:14 pm on Jul 14, 2002 (gmt 0)

Does anyone knows how to use php tags in .htm or .html page?

Welcome to WMW. We hope you find what you are looking for and stick around.

PHP tags inside an HTML document are no different then PHP tags inside a PHP document. The real issue is what interpreter is parsing your HTML files. You need to make sure Apache uses the PHP parser on all files that have the .HTML extension.

Welcome NeedScripts

Drop PHP in where you need it like so:

<p>Today's date is <?php echo date('F j, Y'); ?></p>

if you're using Apache, you might want to add the following line to your httpd.conf file:

for php4

AddType application/x-httpd-php .html

for php3

AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .html

but this will make the php engine to parse all html files, so make sure that's what you want.

Optionally you could have parsing on for .htm, and not for .html, so your static pages would not be parsed, but the ones containing php would be. Name any pages with php .htm, etc
