Server Side Includes are fully supported on all NetGate hosting
accounts. To utilize server side includes all that is required is
that the page containing the SSI directives be named with a ".shtml"
extension vs. the standard ".html" extension. Form more
information please see the Introduction
to Server Side Includes found on the Apache site. Additional
information can be found in the mod_include
documentation, also available from the Apache web site.
How to SSI Enable all ".html" Files
You can make all your documents SSI enabled without having to name
them with a ".shtml" extension by adding the following
directive to your ".htaccess" file. The ".htaccess"
file can be located in your "www" directory making all
files SSI enabled, or in a subdirectory of your "www"
directory making only those files in that directory SSI enabled.
AddHandler server-parsed .html
There is a performance penalty for doing this as all documents,
whether they have SSI directives in them or not, must be parsed
by the Apache server twice before being sent to the client browser.
So, if you don't use SSI in most of your documents we do not recommend
adding this directive.
security reasons the "cmd" and "cgi" directives
are only enabled for customers using the NetGate Personal CGI service.
If you don't have a "cgi-bin" directory, located in your
home directory, then you are not using Personal CGI. All virtual
hosting accounts can be Personal CGI enabled. So, if you do not
have a cgi-bin directory, but do have a virtual hosting account,
and would like Personal CGI enabled, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
