Server Side Includes (SSI) is a set of directives that will enable you to include the content of a text file in an HTML file. This way, you can add any kind of content to various web pages on your site and alter it by just editing an individual text file. You are able to also incorporate the output of various scripts so that the present time and date, the IP address of the visitor or the attributes of a file show on your site. This will let you add some dynamic content to static webpages, making the website more inviting to your visitors and giving it a much more professional appearance. It will be easier to revise this content as compared to editing every static page one by one. If you would like to use Server Side Includes in your website, the pages that contain the content of some file need to be with extension .shtml.
