Today is . This illustrates Sever side includes.
To get today's date above I included:
<!--#echo var="DATE_LOCAL" -->in the html file as served by the Apache server. Then I added “XBitHack on” to my .htaccess file in the top directory at this site. Then I did “chmod 744 today.html” in the directory holding this file.
See this Apache tutorial on Server Side Includes for other ways to do this.
