Anyone used SSI with HostGator?

Hi everybody!

I use HostGator and have a SSI that I use for a client that updates her lunch specials everyday.

The problem I am now having is using a new domain with the same SSI. I would like her to only update ONE file as she is hesitant to make mistakes. This is what I am trying to use to 'share' the file with both domain names (USERNAME being mine):

<!--#include file="/home/USERNAME/specials/lunch.html" -->


<!--#include virtual="/home/USERNAME/specials/lunch.html" -->

If anyone has run into this, I would appreciate it. I have searched HG forum with no luck, and contacted tech support, and they can't help either...

    You have to name your main page with .shtml extension.

    Better if you can do it in PHP just put something like:

    <?php include 'page.html'; ?>

      I have it to work in just the one domain, and yes, I am using the'.shtml' file extension. I am trying to share one file between two domain names, both hosted under my username at hostgator.

      Thanks, though

    First one is the correct option.
