[nycphp-talk] php include file question

I passed along most of the emails to the syst. admin (technician) who
installed the PHP on the servers. He's not in till tomorrow.

I will try Dan's suggestion later tonight. Because, that may resolve the
entire issue.

I don't understand the question below. Too much short-hand. To reclarify,
I have basic html pages for the site. Let's take one of them, index.html.
Within index.html, I used several include files to call standard aspects
of the site (i.e. header, certain repetitive images, and copyright). None
of these include files contain php. They are just html (i.e. <p><img

Simply changing the html or include files to .php does not resolve the issue.

Does that clarify it for you?
