Disabling php in a folder
If you have a folder below your public_html or private_html directories that you wish to have php disabled in, you can use an .htaccess to do to.
Create the file:
and in it, add the code:
AddHandler text/plain .php .php4 .php5 .php6
php_flag engine off
Which disables php in 2 ways. The AddHandler changes the php script functionality, chaning php files to simply be txt files. The 2nd part "php_flag engine off" turns off the php engine.
You can use either one, or both.
Note that with suPhp, you cannot use "php_flag engine off".
