I recently transfer several websites to a new server using WHM. Two of them display html as text in the browser. I copied one of the html files to another domain on same server and it displays as a webpage like it should. Is this a common problem and easily repaired?

deleted .htaccess file, did not help.
I renamed index.html to index.htm and page displays correctly, not a fix but a Band-Aid and maybe a clue

Try to add following code in your .htaccess file if your are still facing the same issues with your other site

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .htm
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .html

My Apology, I thought I deleted the .htaccess but after adding AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .html I noticed everything I thought was gone was still there. A fresh .htaccess file with server-parsed .html for includes and problem is fixed.

Thanks for all of your help
