This article provides you with steps on how to add customer Apache handlers.

Apache Handlers

Apache Handlers allow you to control how Apache will manage certain file types. When Apache recognizes a file, it has an action built in for that file type and will perform that action. If you want Apache to perform 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 in order to run, 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.
