Apache configuration question

o3h used Ask the Experts™
Hi. Lets say I have a file called index.php and file called index.php~.

Apache interprets the .php asusual, but just prints the contents of the php~ file.

My question is how to configure apache to read a .x~ file like a .x file?

Thank you.

This part is from Apache configuration file, where you get to define file types to be used as default documents, just add your document name:

# DirectoryIndex: Name of the file or files to use as a pre-written HTML
# directory index.  Separate multiple entries with spaces.
<IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex index.php index.htm index.html

# AccessFileName: The name of the file to look for in each directory
# for access control information.
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php~
You should have above line in your apache configuration file.
Right now you have probably just "AddType application/x-httpd-php .php"

Restart apache after changing configuration.

I would like several files to work the same way. For example:

allfiles.php allfiles.php~
allfiles.html allfiles.html~

You are talking about the file /etc/apache2/apache2.conf?

yes, this is the conf file you need to edit to add the default documents you need.
Normally , it is httpd.conf.
if you use this etc/apache2/apache2.conf?

you should try to open and find :

<IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex ....

if it exists , it is correct file you should change

<input id="gwProxy" type="hidden"><!--Session data--><input onclick="jsCall();" id="jsProxy" type="hidden">
