    I placing a question on multiple forums to see if some one can lend some advise.

    I have a cgi search script. Results are yielded by merging data with an html template. I can design the template however I like because it is just html. When results are shown on the screen, the url is search.cgi. Because it is a cgi my ssi's do not work. I need a way to structure the ssi's within a cgi.

    I have placed a .htacess file in my dir and tried the following:

    AddHandler cgi-script .html
    AddType text/x-server-parsed-html .html

    The cgi works but still no ssi.

    Thank you for any help.

    Well, check out for a tutorial on htaccess.

    Basically, what it sounds like is that either the handler for includes is tied to a file extension on your sever other than the one you are using (such as .shtml), or includes are not turned on in your server software. Check your server documentation.
