Php.ini and MIME types

  1. Where is php.ini usually located for shared hosting accounts?

  2. How do i use custom MIME types for PHP files such as

thanks in advace :slight_smile:

  1. If you can, use phpinfo(), and you should see something like Configuration File (php.ini) Path. Next to it is the locations

  2. I’m not sure exactly what you mean, but I think you want a .inc file to be parsed by PHP. . .

If you have Apache as the server, and you have .htaccess enabled, add this line to a .htaccess file to make .inc be parsed by PHP. (You can just change .inc to whatever to have that parsed by PHP too)

AddType application/x-httpd-php .inc

If you don’t have access to .htaccess, ask you administrator if s/he can add that to the server’s configuration file

The php.ini path shown doesn’t even exist in my shared host account :confused:

Also , when i added that line to ‘.htaccess’ file , i got the following error (when i tried to request the .inc file) :

Internal Server Error

Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
