Is there a way in this world to have a php (in this case voting) script on an .html page? I do not want to rename my index.html and change all the links from all the other pages to it..

Just that one page?

in .htaccess


<Files index.html>
ForceType application/x-httpd-php
</Files>

That'll make apache treat he html file as a php file...

Hmm.. I just blindly used it and now it just downloads the page and views it locally.
I guess I'll just have to give in. :)

well, without much understanding of what it does. Just a fancy expression for copy-paste. ;)

put it in a file called .htacces and stick that file in your root dir. like /home/users/www/yoursite.com/.htacces

Yeah, yeah, I know what .htaccess is. :) It's just doing what I said earlier - downloads index.html and views it locally. I just do not understand why.

there is also the addtype directive
[httpd.apache.org...]

something like

AddType application/x-httpd-php .html

if your calling it in with a SSI include, why not just add:

AddHandler server-parsed .shtml .html

to your .htaccess in that directory.

A different approach:
You could make a new index.php file and create a symbolic link index.html pointing to index.php, provided your configuration allows symbolic links to be followed.
Or, alternatively, a RewriteRule might help, transforming requests for index.html to index.php.

Hope it helps,

M.

You could use an IFrame. Cheers.
