Files with Extra ".php." Extension

If you were directed to this page, you probably tried viewing a file that contains .php. in its name, such as image.php.jpeg or image.php. (note the extra dot at the end).

The site you were visiting uses the Apache Web server, which will usually attempt to run such files as PHP scripts (instead of allowing your browser to display them as images, or completely failing to run them, as you'd probably expect).

Allowing those files to run as a PHP script is a security vulnerability, as seen in exploits for WordPress and Joomla. Because of that, we block requests to these files.

If you’re the owner of this site and you want to use a real image that includes “.php.” as part of the name, please rename the file.
