When serving .html files as php an "Access denied." is displayed instead of the 
properly parsed page.

With php versions <= 5.3.8 the following configuration example works for nginx

server {
  server_name domain.tpl *.domain.tld;
  root   /home/sites/domain.tld/home/html;

  location ~ \.(php|htm|html)$ {
    fastcgi_pass   unix:/tmp/php-fpm.socket;  
    fastcgi_index  index.php;
    fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
    include        fastcgi_params;


files on /home/sites/domain.tld/home/html are:

http://domain.tld/index.html <--- does not work with php-5.3.9 display an Access 
http://domain.tld/test.php   <--- works 

Expected result:
properly parse the .html and display the content.

Actual result:
Access denied.

php 5.3.9 adds support to chose what extensions to parse 

the solution was to add the next line the php-fpm.conf

security.limit_extensions = .php .html

It also happens on Debian Lenny. It's not system related.

Be aware that FPM is marked as *experimental* on 5.3.x. Which means that changes 
can break configurations between release.

It's the case between 5.3.8 and 5.3.9 as the security.limit_extensions 
configuration item has been added and it defaults to .php. If you need to execute 
other extensions, you have to change this setting.

++ fat

Note: the experimental flag has been removed in 5.4.x.
