::::: Server Side Includes (SSI) :::::

SSI allows you to parse basic data and other files into web pages. You may want to use SSI to avoid having to repeat the header / footer of your web pages and/or to include useful information such as the time in your pages.

Files containing SSI directives must end with the ".shtml" extension.

Read the straightforward SSI tutorial at apache.org to learn how to use SSI directives.
