Well, if you're saying that the chance is greater than 0, then I guess I would agree that would have to be the case, but I wouldn't expect that to work. I believe the ea in that mime type stands for EasyApache, which is how WHM/cPanel servers update and configure Apache and PHP. If you aren't using EasyApache, then I doubt your server is going to have that particular mime type set up for it. But, like I said, I would have to admit that the probability of it working is at least greater than 0.
Instead, try to figure out, from documentation or program settings, what mime type your server is actually using for PHP. That will get you a lot closer than a guess.
