I know you can do some things in .htaccess that you would normally do in httpd.conf or access.conf, but I'm having some trouble figuring out how. What I want to use is something that works fine in httpd.conf, but doesn't seem to in .htaccess. It goes like this:

<location productions>
ForceType application/x-httpd-php3

which makes the file "productions" parsed as php. I know I can put it in the httpd.conf file, but I will probably have several of these entries, and I don't want to have to go into httpd.conf every time I want to change them.
