By | April 17, 2020

An image can be run as a php script? The answer is yes. In this tutorial, we will use an example to illustrate you how to do.

## Edit .htaccess

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^(.*?).png$test.php?q=$1

## Create a php file

This file is called to test.php, you can add content below.

<?php
echo \$_GET["q"];
?>

## Open a url that ends with .png

For example, you open url: http://127.0.0.1/test/123.png

You will get the result:123

The file type of 123.png is an image, however, it runs a php code.
