Re: Hard link shows php source code

No. It will output the source code. You can make it executable and add
to the top of the file and it will execute using /usr/bin/php if it's setup as some form of CGI.

However, you probably do not want this.

A hard link is just another pointer to the same file on the same file system. So, to any application it behaves as if it were a copy but it is identical. You can setup handlers for files that execute them as PHP for any extension or probably even any file in the php-fpm/fcgi/module configuration.

Will a link to a php source code file that is named without a php suffix be considered and run as a php source code file?
I hope this clears it up. I don't know how I can clarified further.
