Server Side Includes (SSI) really is a group of directives that will enable you to contain the content of a text file inside an HTML file. By doing this, you are able to add some content to various pages in your website and alter it by just modifying just one text file. You are able to also add the output of different scripts so that the current date and time, the IP address of the visitor or the attributes of a file show on your site. This will help you add some dynamic content to static web pages, making the website more desirable to your website visitors and giving it a far more professional overall look. It will likewise be much easier to update this content in comparison with editing each static page one at a time. If you want to use Server Side Includes in your site, the pages that contain the content of some file should be with extension .shtml.
