Getting server side include to work

Postby igraffman » 17. July 2007 01:30

Hello,

Successfully installed everything! Status panel shows Server Side
Includes activated, but code that works on another server does
not work on my PC. What else (if anything) do I need to do to
get it working?

Thank you!

I think it's not possible to include php scripts from other servers because it's a big security risk.

Everybody can include your scripts then, output the code and search for exploits etc.

Understand. But the text for the server side include (which is html and not php) resides on a folder on my PC and not on an external machine.

Maybe a stupid question but,

Have you placed this file in the c:/program files/xampp/htdocs folder?
Can you open/browse it directly using http://localhost/page.html ?
