For starters, I'd just like to tell you I'm a newbie to SSI, CGI, and MySQL, as of today in fact. However, its been a very enlightening day. I've setup a database, which a forum is connected to and is working perfectly. But that is not why I'm confused.
I'm using this news updating script package called "NewsPro" and its very very cool, and I got everything working except one small detail, which is very interesting. Basically, I use the script and post a news message, much like I'm posting this message here, and it sends the info off to a database. Then, when I'm ready, I hit "build" and it grabs the info from the database, and compiles it into a txt file along with the necessary HTML formatting. Then in my page where I want the news to be, I've used a SSI to bring that text file in, and there's my text. So here's the deal, check out these two links. They are exactly the same, except for the fact that one is using the actual server address and the other is my virtual domain. The virtual domian won't include the SSI.

Now I remember to use relative paths instead of absolute paths in the include, as I read that URL's will not work.
I know one of you guys out there know somethin, help me out!
Thanx in advance,
MasonX (yea yea I know it says Undertow)
Well I got it running. Its not pretty however. It just wouldn't accept the fact that I had the txt file in a different directory while using a virtual domain, even though it is supposedly designed to handle that. I think thats a problem with my server. So anywho, I just copied all the files into the root directory so it didn't have to go to a different directory to fetch the txt file. I'd still like to know how to fix this though, because now my root directory is awfully cluttered. I pretty much knew all along that this was an option, I just wanted to go to every length I could to avoid it.
Little side note: I had a similar problem with a java applet not accepting files from a different directory, even though I supposedly had everything set right. I know SysOpt is hosted with pair, or at least they were, so maybe you guys (big kahunas :P) would know something about it?

Which include statement are you using?
Virtual...and thanks for responding I am now having yet another problem, the **** thing won't refresh! I put in new news and hit reload, nothing different. I've tried flushing the memory and disk cache, to no avail. I know its writing the news to the txt because I've opened it manually man times just to see, and all the news is there.
The only way I can get it to show the new news is if I edit the SSI to point to a different file, then reload the page, then change the SSI back to the original file, and only then does it show. I'll try using "file" instead of "virtual".
Just tried "file", no dice. Interesting enough however I created another user and submitted a news under that name and it showed up. So I thought maybe if I went back under my original login and make another post that would show up too, but no
Are you behind some kind of proxy server? Your problem just seems very strange to me.
Nope no proxy or firewall or any strange ****. And believe, the problem is very strange to me as well.
