Do I need to change web pages to a .php extention

A service I am subscribing to is asking that I insert php script on each page of my web site, this is easy enough.

They give this instruction:

...................................

Copy and Paste one of the code snippets below into every single web document on http://test2.oceanpacificwoodproducts.com.

WARNING: YOUR WEBHOST MUST HAVE PHP ENABLED AND YOUR DOCUMENT MUST USE THE .php EXTENSION TO USE THE PHP CODE SNIPPET.
............................................
My host has PHP enabled.

All my web documents are .htm pages I have 20 pages on my web site.

Question, when they say my document must use the .php extension then do I rename each page from .htm to a .php page?

This is my second web site and first time doing anything with php, I appreciate this is probably a simple question, it is so simple it is hard to find the answer.

thanks

acejake,

You will most likely have to change the extension.  The host can confirm this. The server could be set up to process .htm pages too but that isn't usual.  If you can't get a straight answer from the host then change the extension.  Php script should start with <?php and end with ?>.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.
