HTML Question

AddType in htaccess causes page to download

I have read about 10 questions like this, but there seems to be no answer to this simple question.

What could cause .htm files to be downloading instead of executed as php?

I am using the following code:

AddType application/x-httpd-php htm


I have tried many combinations but no success.

What else can I try?

All I need is .htm and .html files to execute php.

Answer

Use AddHandler also, change htm to .htm and add .html

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