@marqusG is right (if you are using Apache) but you do have to have PHP installed on the server.

work like php

It cannot be function the html page as php.  but we can configure on the server the php pages to act as .html extension.

Because, PHP is a pure server-side programming which will be executed through server.. but HTML is just plain page, it cannot function as PHP

You can simply edit your existing .htaccess file adding this line:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .html

If you have not a .htaccess file, simply create a new one empty text file, paste the line aboce and save it as .htaccess with no extension; then place it in your document root directory.

This way, each html page will be treated as a php page.

I think only the comment ID: 38371069 gave a solution to your problem: breaking points seems a wrong choice...

Good luck with your project

yes comment ID: 38371069 gave more info on how to do it. But ID: 38370919 say the same thing with out giving all the info. And ID: 38371164 say that it will only work on a server using Apache that i didn't know. So that info was helpful

Also my question saids "with out change any server settings. "

so  ID: 38371069 is changing server settings by editing the .htaccess file.

So i thing breaking points up to all was the right thing to do.
