Server Side Includes (SSI) really is a set of directives that will allow you to include the content of a text file in an HTML file. In this manner, you are able to add some content to various webpages in your website and modify it just by updating just one text file. You'll be able to also add the output of distinctive scripts so that the present time and date, the IP address of the website visitor or the properties of a file show on your site. This will help you add in some dynamic content to static web pages, making the website more inviting to your website visitors and creating a far more professional look and feel. It will also be simpler to update this content in comparison with updating every static web page one by one. If you want to use Server Side Includes in your website, the pages that include the content of any kind of file must be with extension .shtml.
