    Is is possible to put SSI on a different domain?

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if it's possible to put SSI (server side includes) on different domains?

    For example, let's say I have 2 web sites. They both need to have an identical bit of HTML on every page.

    Right now what I'd do is put the same SSI code on each site. Then when I modified that code, I'd do it twice.

    However, I'm wondering if there's a way to have the SSI code reside on only 1 of the 2 sites. Then in the site that does not have it, I would reference it to the other domain.

    Is that possible? If so how? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    You cannot use SSI alone to include something from outside of the server. But you can use SSI to include the output from CGI scripts. And if your server is running Perl, the CGI module and the LWP::Simple module than you can use

    <!--#include virtual="myScript.pl" -->

    and then run the following Perl script, named myScript.pl, on the server:

    use CGI qw(header);
    use LWP::Simple;
    print header, get 'http://wwww.w3.org/';
