  • Make sure the web server is running, and point your browser to xitamis admin console (usually, and click on Configuration.

  • Navigate to the Filters, and put the extension which PHP should parse (i.e. .php) into the field File extensions (.xxx).

  • In Filter command or script put the path and name of your PHP CGI executable i.e. C:\php\php.exe for PHP 4, or C:\php\php-cgi.exe for PHP 5.

  • Press the 'Save' icon.

  • Restart the server to reflect changes.
