cPanel : Adding custom Apache handlers

cPanel allows for adding custom handlers for Apache. Apache handlers specify as to how to deal with web files, and how to serve a file with a specific extension.

For instance, Apache might be configured to process all files with the file extension .pl as perl files and interpret them as Perl files. However, if you want all files with the extension .perl or say .script to be processed by Perl, you would have to set up this custom Apache handler for your site.
