Apache handlers control how your site’s Apache web server software manages certain file types and file extensions. Apache can handle CGI scripts and server-parsed files. The file extensions for these files include .cgi, .pl, .plx, .ppl, .perl, and .shtml.
You can configure Apache to use an existing handler to handle a new file type. To do this, manually add the handler and extension in this interface.
Create an Apache Handler
To add an Apache handler, perform the following steps:
Enter the handler name in the Handler text box. cPanel includes the following built-in handlers:
default-handler — Sends the file and uses Apache’s default handler for static content.
send-as-is — Sends the file with HTTP headers intact.
cgi-script — Handles the file as a CGI script.
imap-file — Parses the file as an imagemap rule file.
