Question Turn off (disable) PHP for some virtual hosts in Apache

I currently host a number of web sites on a Fedora Core 4, Apache 2 box. I have PHP 5 installed. I'm happy to say that everything is running beautifully. I switched the last of my sites over from a Windows box this weekend. No more Windows!

I have a question regarding PHP in Apache. Is there an way to turn on/off PHP for various virtual hosts in Apache similar to how you can enable/disable Perl/CGI? I have searched but I haven't found what I need.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can create a .htaccess file in the DocumentRoot of your VirtualHost with this line:
php_flag engine off
and add or edit the following inside the <VirtualHost...></VirtualHost>
AllowOveride All

I apologize for the time-elapse. Thanks for the reply. For my setup I did not want to add the code to disable PHP in .htaccess because I wouldn't want any over-achievers to re-enable it.

I already had the line AllowOverride All turned on in my virtual hosts files but by adding

php_value engine off
anywhere in the <VirtualHost></VirtualHost> did indeed disable PHP.
