I cleared a server with some shells uploaded with the help of joomla 1.5. I managed to clear the shells but on closer inspection the Apache runs every php file script like: anything.php.anything with the condition that .php exists in filename.

The httpd conf files are intact and without AddType application and there is no htaccess file.

Any idea from where to change this behavior?

  • Have you checked about mod_mime? – WhiteWinterWolf Sep 8 '15 at 10:45
  • mod_mime is enabled and looks fine. Any config files to check for? – calculataur Sep 8 '15 at 10:57
  • @calculataur: If your issue is solved, could you put your solution in an answer and mark it as a good answer instead of updating the question? It would be interesting also if you could tell the value before modification so your post could serve as a reference telling the initial configuration, the issue caused by it and the corresponding solution. Thanks! – WhiteWinterWolf Sep 9 '15 at 14:36

RESOLVED by modifying php handler:

<FilesMatch \.php$>
    SetHandler php5-script
