If you've downloaded a web site from the Wayback Machine and want to have files that would usually be "active" pages work as static HTML files, then create a .htaccess file in your site's public_html folder, and add this line to it:
AddType text/html .php .asp .aspx .cfm .jsp .do .action .cgi .pl
You can add extra extensions to that line if you have other
extensions that you want to have work as regular HTML as well.
