There is a setting for Apache to enable SSI - I believe if you scan the
config file, it will be commented out.

As it's the server side, do we need to install any additional component on
the server? I know on the IIS on Windows it come in the package. How about
the other web server software?

Server side includes are used for web servers. I use it often. Very simply,
you add this line to your html file.

<!--#include virtual="file" -->

I use virtual addresses for the files, you can also use hard disk addresses.

Wherever you have that, it is replaced with the content in the file. It is a
way to make it so you don't have to repeat content, but for text only and
the user doesn't know you use it. I name my files .html even if they have
SSI, yet some people like to use .shtml (beats me why).

NowI'm not the expert on this, but from what I have read, a file with the
extension .SHTML means it utilizes Server-Side Includes (SSI) which enables
a
web developer to insert HTML (by using an SSI command) across a whole
website
by changing just a single file, which the embedded SSI command calls for.

As for how to use SSI, I have no idea.

If I'm wrong, sorry.

(Hopefully),
David Bindel
