Apache Handlers

Apache handlers control how your site’s Apache web server software manages certain file types and file extensions. Apache comes configured to handle CGI scripts and server-parsed files. Their file extensions include: .cgi.pl.plx.ppl.perl, and .shtml.

You can configure Apache to handle a new file type with an existing handler by manually adding the handler and extension to cPanel. For example, to have the server treat files with the extension .example as CGI files, you would type ”cgi-script” under Handler and “.example” under Extension(s)
