How do I Parse PHP in HTML? (2015)

Hi, I’m using Ubuntu 14.04 and want to be able to have the web server parse HTML as PHP, a.k.a. put PHP in a .html file and have it still interpreted. I’ve seen some other tutorials, including this one

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/tip-parsing-php-in-html-files

However none of them seem to work. How can I accomplish this?

Thanks

I figured it out, turns out I had to enable the .htaccess that I made in my /var/www/html folder. There are instructions for ot around this website. I’m actually not really sure which wen server I’m using but I have an apache2 folder in my web directory.

Which web server are you using? Apache, nginx or something else?
