    Runtime Configuration

    The behaviour of the Apache PHP module is affected
    by settings in php.ini. Configuration
    settings from php.ini may be overridden
    by php_flag settings in the server configuration file or
    local .htaccess files.

    Example #1 Turning off PHP parsing for a directory using

    php_flag engine off

    Apache configuration options
    Name Default Changeable Changelog
    engine “1” PHP_INI_ALL  
    child_terminate “0” PHP_INI_ALL  
    last_modified “0” PHP_INI_ALL  
    xbithack “0” PHP_INI_ALL  

    For further details and definitions of the PHP_INI_* modes, see the
    Where a
    configuration setting may be set

    Here’s a short explanation of the configuration


    Turns PHP parsing on or off. This directive is
    really only useful in the Apache module version of PHP. It is used
    by sites that would like to turn PHP parsing on and off on a
    per-directory or per-virtual server basis. By putting
    engine off in the
    appropriate places in the httpd.conf
    file, PHP can be enabled or disabled.

    child_terminate boolean

    Specify whether PHP scripts may request child
    process termination on end of request, see also apache_child_terminate().

    last_modified boolean

    Send PHP scripts modification date as
    Last-Modified: header for this request.


    Parse files with executable bit set as PHP
    regardless of their file ending.
