Back in the days of Apache1
All that was needed to get the syntax highlighted PHP source view was:
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
In the Apache configuration file.
This followed the same pattern as the line to make PHP run on PHP files:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

Now with Apache2, the regular line has become:
<Files *.php>
        SetOutputFilter PHP
        SetInputFilter PHP

And I have looked high and low to get the functionality with Apache2 but it does not seem to exist. I have looked in the PHP source as well, to no avail.

From looking at the source, could a new set of input/output filters named PHPS to do the source highlighting?

I listed this as a bug, as the removal of the PHPS functionality is not documented in any release notesor mailing list that I have found.

I have used "AddType application/x-httpd-php .php" with
apache2 and it works just fine. I didn't try the source type
though. Have you tried those? Or just the new style?

I just commented out my previous PHP lines,
and put in this:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

To test for certain again, and although regular PHP works with the AddType directive, the directive containing php-source seems to do nothing at all.

I use the Set[Input/Output]Filter PHP commands because I use a chain of content handlers in some other parts of my server (namely PHP+SSI), so just the having the AddType method fixed would not be enough, as I need an
Filter instead.

For testing purposes, here are some PHP pages I'm working on:

(In case you are wondering about them, I'm a core developer on phpMyAdmin)

Side note on this,
I just reproduced it on Linux-2.4.18, with a slightly older CVS of PHP and Apache2.0.39.

It does not work as it hasn't been implemented yet.

 [2002-07-17 18:07 UTC] robbat2 at orbis-terrarum dot net
Is there either an ETA for it or some implementation suggestions for writing it myself?
 [2002-07-17 18:10 UTC]
ETA? such thing exists here..this is opensource project. :)

About implementation..I guess it should work same as with the 1.3.x apache SAPI..

I'll see about hacking on the code for it this evening and tommorow morning and submiting a patch afterwards.

Thanks for the help Jani.

I experienced the same situation using apache 2.0.39 under windows. My PHP-version is 4.2.2 as a module for apache 2.

having same issue on php v4.3.0-dev on Solaris 8 (SPARC).  When I click on a .phps file I get the source -- but the browser doesn't know what to do with the MIME-type applicaiton/x-http-php-source.

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a PHP problem, snapshots of the sources are packaged
every three hours; this change will be in the next snapshot. You can
grab the snapshot at
In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up soon at

In case this was a website problem, the change will show
up on the site and on the mirror sites in short time.
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.
