Server Side Includes (SSI)

SSI is a server-side scripting language. SSI scripting commands are embedded within a webpage and are parsed and executed on the web server to generate dynamic HTML pages.

SSI's are used to include information, for example a header or footer, that can be used on lots of pages. If the pages need to be updated you simply need to change the SSI and all the pages update simultaneously.

One practical example of SSI is the random scriptures SSI immediately below the navigation bar on most pages within the mickwood.com site. We can start you off with 200 scriptures. It is really easy to add your own favourite bible verses.

SSI's can also show various environment variables which are accessible to a server program. You can see some of the environment variables below.

If you reload / refresh this page (F5) you can see how the various dynamic elements change.
