RE: Setting up local SSI's on Win2k Professional - workaround

Hi Paul

The only difference between using file as to virtual for your SSI's is the way you have to apply them - they both work :)

As a rule you should use "file=" when the included file is within the same directory as the page that wants it. Use "virtual=" when it isn't.

Here's some more info. for folk and cheers for your post - Jason

Setting up local SSI's on Win2k Professional - workaround

Ive just had the same problem, but solved it by using 'file' and not 'virtual' in the include statement. not sure of the other implications.
