I want to create a membership site using Adobe Muse, so I need to know if I can use .php script for this? When I open up the page properties there doesn't seem to be a way to convert a page from .html to .php .
You can't change the Muse pages into .php pages. It creates the pages in .html format only.
I have found that it is possible to run .php with Muse, it's working well on one of my sites through the server.
If you have access to your server, and can restart it, and you know whether PHP is running as a module or cgi, and so on, the best solution is to include a ".htaccess" file in your root document directory to tell the server to parse HTML files (process the PHP code inside). For example:
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.php
RemoveHandler .html .htm
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .html .htm
Search for something like "parse php in html files" for more information and various configurations. And remember to restart your server before expecting it to work.
Anyway, once you've done that, you can paste in a PHP include, or script or entire page or whatever, just as you would the code for a Google map, Facebook feed, etc.
I set up PHPMuse, and quickly discovered (on a scratch/testing site) that it made an image invisible (the only one on site) and also disabled any breakpoints (when i hit a breakpoint, everything disappeared). Back in normal HTML version, everything works great. I looked at the PHPMuse.php script, it seems harmless enough, it's just renaming the .html to .php and replacing your [[php script call]] with the actual php script tag. Is there a chance the adobe muse scripts are relying on some things ending in .html to function normally?
the site is down 404
