I am redoing my site that has all .htm extensions. I want to use some php scripting but am concerned that if I direct php to parse .htm files on my Apache server, it might cause problems. Has anyone tried this with success or know of any downside?
Thanks much!

Use the PHP file extension instead of setting Apache to parse htm and html files.

By telling Apache to parse these files, your webserver will attempt to parse EVERY file it serves with that extension.  This is going to cause some major performance problems on the server.
