Execute .php3 Files Under PHP4 / PHP5 Installed On Linux Server

PHP4 or PHP5 do not have any problem to execute php3 files. The only problem is you need to force PHP4 or PHP5 to understand .php3 file extension as a php script.

Most modern Linux/BSD/UNOX system comes with PHP4 (and now PHP5). They can execute .PHP3 files without any problem.

Open you httpd.conf file and look for PHP4 configuration directive:
vi httpd.conf
Once located add the following line to it:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php3
Above line will make your server execute .php3 scripts as PHP scripts. Restart apahce to take effect:
# service httpd restart
