Parsing php with html extension

Can anyone on here tell me how this would be possible within a virtualmin / Ubuntu 8.04 enviroment searced the internet found a few instruction but not seemed to work.

i want to be able to use the <?Php include> feature on a html page, Im not able to change the html extension to php as this is a template file.

Ive added

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

to the .conf file but made no difference also added this to the htaccess file again no difference can anyone point me in the right direction.

EDIT:

Someone on my server here is doing exactly that – they added this to their .htaccess file:

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

And then, in their HTML, they have:

<?php include "foo.php" ;?>

So you do still need to wrap it in “php” tags, but that should work for you if you’re doing so.
