php3 extention support

I am trying to install php3 support on my server i have apache 2 and php 4 something.

the php extention works just fine.

I have read the bottom of this 500 times and i still cant figure out what i need to do.

I dont know if i have a module apache install or a cgi-bin install. All i know is that however RH9 sets it up is how php and apache is installed.

i figure out WHERE to put this

AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .php3

but it dont seem to work. I have restarted apache server several time and it wont work . Im lost.

UPDATE: Now for some reason when i put in a file such as it opens up a download prompt where i can just save the file instead of opening the file :/.

did you try putting your php3 file in your cgi-bin?

it's usually /var/www/cgi-bin

that line goes into the httpd.conf file, search for it in the /etc/httpd/ dir

edit: and restart httpd afterwards: /sbin/service httpd restart

(and you don't have to put that file in the /var/www/cgi-bin folder)
