Can I use the ".phps" file type to view highlighted PHP source code?
Some Web servers allow you to name a file so that it ends with "
.phps", then see a color-coded version of the PHP source code when you view the file in a Web browser. For that feature to work automatically, the server must run PHP as a "module", which we don't do for security reasons.
However, advanced users can easily get the same functionality. You have to add a simple PHP file to your site, then add two lines to your .htaccess file.
To do this, first create a new PHP file named "
phps.php" at the top level of your website that contains these lines:
<?php highlight_file(substr($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],1)); ?>
Then add these two lines to your "
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php-source .phps Action application/x-httpd-php-source /phps.php
That's all it takes: from then on, any file ending in "
.phps" will be displayed and highlighted.
