How to enable short tags in php using .htaccess

                       Mostly you would use ' <?php echo $name; ?> ' tag for display anything you want. You can also display this type of single variable value by <?=$name?>. But sometime your browser doesn't take this tag. On that time, you won't get proper output. So you can be done this by .htaccess.

              php_value short_open_tag 1
