Server Side Includes (SSI) really is a set of directives that will permit you to contain the content of a text file within an HTML file. This way, you can add some content to various webpages on your site and modify it simply by modifying a single text file. You're able to also incorporate the output of different scripts so the current date and time, the IP address of the visitor or the attributes of a file show up on your site. This will enable you to incorporate some dynamic content to static webpages, making the site more desirable to your website visitors and giving it a far more professional visual appearance. It will also be simpler to update this content in comparison with updating every static web page one at a time. If you wish to use Server Side Includes in your website, the web pages that include the content of any kind of file need to be with extension .shtml.
