How do I enable SSI?

Enabling SSI (Server Side Includes) isn't complicated. However, there a few things that you need to have to make SSI work. They are fairly obvious, but we're going to outline them.

    * For SSI you need to ensure that you have the correct tags in your source code, below is an example of a SSI tag:

          <!--#include file="included.html" -->

    * Then you will need to enter in the following into your .htaccess, to enable SSI on the server:

          Options +Includes
          AddType text/html .shtml
          AddHandler server-parsed .shtml

The above should get your SSI working on your hosting account.
