Apache Handlers

Problem:

What are Apache Handlers? How do I setup customized Apache Handlers?

Solution:

Apache handlers allow you to control what Apache will do with certain file types. When Apache sees a file, it has an action built in for that file type, and will perform that action. If you wish Apache to do a different action, you will need to make a handler to tell Apache to perform that action. For example, if you use a file type that requires a special service to run it, such as a file with server side includes that is not named with a .shtml extension, you need to tell Apache to treat these files differently. More information on Apache's Handlers can be found at http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/handler.html.

Creating An Apache Handler

  1. Log into your Just Host cPanel.
  2. Go to the "Advanced" group of icons.
  3. Click on "Apache Handlers".

  5. In the second empty text box, enter the extension the handler will use when being called.
  6. Click on the Add button.
  7. Click on the Go Back button to return to the Main cPanel menu.
