Is it possible to multiple web application platforms on the same server? ex: PHP and JSP on Apache

Ayse Geertsma, Dave Morrison,
Yes, it is. I'm not sure if PHP and JSP bite on an Apache but in
general a webserver (including Apache and IIS) decides to parse a file
based on it's file-extension.
I'm not sure if this is the same on all OS-es but in your httpd.conf
(Apache!) there should be a line like :
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml
This line is already there but it's commented out. The last words (.php
and .phtml) tell Apache to connect .php and .phtml with the correct
handler. (There's another line to define the handler. See
I guess a similar line can be added for perl (.cgi or .pl), jsp
(.jsp?), ms-asp (.asp) etc. As long as you use different extensions it
should be fine.
