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

- Go to the "Advanced" group of icons.
