Paraphrased: If most of your page is being generated at the time that it is served, you should start looking at other solutions.

Does anyone know why they would suggest looking at alternatives to SSI? I'm thinking about using RSS feeds. I haven't learned PHP yet, but would it be the best solution?

If you are thinking of including RSS feeds via SSI to your page - then it simply won't work. SSI works only on local machine.

Their suggestion makes sense for huge sites. Every SSI generates an extra HD read. And that is the bottleneck.

Thanks. What do you think is the best thing to do?

SlowMove

Are you trying to use RSS on your site to display the news from another site?

It most certainly will work but you'll need to have a program to parse the rss feeds.

Right. I was thinking that I could grab the feeds a few times per day, parse them, and include the reformatted data using SSI. The host allows PHP, Perl, and mySQL. I don't really understand why SSI would put a greater load on the system.

Maybe I should send an email to the host to ask them to explain. Could it be that they'll allow one SSI per page, but that they don't want 10 or 12 on each page?

You should be ok with one SSI per page.

Just to avoid problems with the host, I'm using the following:


<?php
include("file.html");
?>
