How to Add Apache Handlers in the Control Panel

Posted by Ashley Hayward on September 04 2015 12:40 PM

Apache handlers control how your site manages certain file types and file extensions. Generally, files have specific handlers based on the file type. The server has many handlers preset by default. However, you can also specify if you want certain file types handled in a different way than is already configured, by adding your own handlers. This can be done by manually by editing your .htaccess file, or by updating the control panel with the new handler information.

This article assumes that you are already familiar with how to log in to the customer control panel. If you do not know how to log in or have forgotten your password, please refer to this article first.

  • On the control panel Home tab, click "Manage Website" under the Websites section.

  • Click "Web Hosting Settings".

  • From the Advanced tab, navigate to the Apache Handlers sub-tab, then click "Add New Handler".

  • From the Handler drop down menu, select one of the below handler types, then enter your file extension to which the handler will apply. Click Submit. Note: The file extension should be listed without a period at the beginning.
    • send-as-is: Sends the file with HTTP headers intact.
    • cgi-script: Handles the file as a CGI script.
    • imap-file: Parses the file as an imagemap rule file.
    • server-parsed: Parses the file for server-side includes.
    • type-map: Parses the file as a type map file.
