SSI is used to insert external files into a page, print system variables, and show results from CGI scripts. If you, for example, have a menu you can instead of writing 30 lines of code simply use one line on each page to show the same menu.
To use SSI, it requires that the page has the file extension .shtml.
Insert a text file
Use the following code to insert an external text file, which is located in the same directory.
<html> <head><title>SSI test 1</title></head> <body> <!--#include file="insert.txt"--> </body> </html>
Print system variables
Use the following code to print out some information from the system, such as date, time and the IP number to the visitor.
<html> <head><title>SSI test 2SSI</title></head> <body> <!--#echo var="DATE_LOCAL"--> <!--#echo var="REMOTE_ADDR"--> </body> </html>
Show results from a CGI script
Use the following code to display results from a CGI script. This can be useful e.g. for a counter.
<html> <head><title>SSI test 3</title></head> <body> <!--#exec cgi="/cgi-bin/count.cgi"--> </body> </html>
