How to use .htaccess to run all .html files as .php by using PHP handlers in Apache w/o CGI?

If you are not able to find the correct Handler, Simply create a .php file with the following contents:

<?php echo $_SERVER['REDIRECT_HANDLER']; ?>

and run/open this file in browser.

application httpd handler
example application handler

Use this output in .htaccess file

Create a .htaccess file at the root of your website(usually a folder named public_html or htdocs on linux servers) and add this line:

AddType [[THE OUTPUT FROM ABOVE FILE]] .html .htm


AddType application/x-httpd-php70 .html .htm
AddType application/x-httpd-php72 .html .htm
AddType application/x-httpd-php .html .htm

If your are running PHP as CGI then try something like this:

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

Important Note:

If you see blank page or Notice: Undefined index: REDIRECT_HANDLER

Try default in .htaccess

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .html

If you are godaddy user, try one of these settings:

Options +ExecCGI
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .html
AddHandler x-httpd-php5 .php .html
AddHandler x-httpd-php7 .php .html
AddHandler x-httpd-php5-cgi .html
AddHandler x-httpd-php7-cgi .html


Creating a table in PhpMyAdmin Xampp server.

Hello People.

In this post we will discuss that how you can create a table in phpmyadmin xampp server for your php project.

Before creating a table first you must create a database, because without database you can not create a table.

steps to create a table in phpmyadmin.

  • Start your Xampp server and open the following link in your browser.
    localhost/phpmyadmin . Now click on the New button.
  • Give name to your database and hit create button. As shown in the image below.

Our database has been created and now we can start creating the table.

  • Click on the database that you just created in the previous step. Then give name to your table and specify the number of columns under the structure menu.
  • Next you just need to fill your table with the details of your project.

You can also create table using MySql query. For that go to the SQL menu and and write your query. If your query is correct the table will be created. An example is shared below.

CREATE TABLE persons (
    LastName varchar(255) NOT NULL,
    FirstName varchar(255),
    Address varchar(255),
    phone varchar(70) NOT NULL UNIQUE

So, that’s all for now.

Thank You.

How to get all attributes with all available labels/options in Magento2?

I did a lot of research but could not find a solution for that. so gathered some info and created this code: (it is not the best way to do it, but it works – you can use it at least one time for quick results)
the values need to be transformed if you want to see them properly in csv

Here is how to print all available attributes in backend and along with their all available options aka labels

        use \Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap;
        $bootstrap = Bootstrap::create(BP, $_SERVER);
        $objectManager = $bootstrap->getObjectManager();
        //use Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\Attribute\CollectionFactory;
        $collection= $objectManager->get('\Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\Attribute\CollectionFactory')->create();
//$attr_groups = array();
        foreach ($collection as $items) {
                        $attr_groups = $items->getData();
                                                if($attr_groups['frontend_input']=="select" or $attr_groups['frontend_input']=="multiselect"){
//echo $attr_groups['attribute_code'].'<br>'.$attr_groups['frontend_input'].'<br>'.$attr_groups['frontend_label'].'<br>'.$attr_groups['attribute_id'].'<br>';
foreach($eav as $getlabel) {
        $r = new ReflectionObject($getlabel['label']);
$p = $r->getProperty('text');
//echo $p;
        $ft[]= $p->getValue($getlabel['label']);
        $ft[]= $getlabel['label'];

[SOLVED] PHP must be run as a CLI application error : Content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8

php bin/magento cache:clean
Content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
bin/magento must be run as a CLI application

as root user, run the following commands (For php v7.0)

# yum install ea-php70
# source /opt/cpanel/ea-php70/enable

The solution involves fixing php variable’s path. We need to find which php is being used right now, you can find out by

$ which php
$ php -v

To fix this PHP cli error, see how to edit php in bash profile (.bashrc)
