The original HTTP server did have a bug in it that prevented it from
working properly with CGI... Particularly server-side includes. But
there is a PTF for it and I think they even PTF'd it back to V4R5.

One comment.  If you are using the IBM Original HTTP server I don't
think it has the same capabilities as Apache, as far as parsing through
the dynamic CGI output.  At least I couldn't find it when I was having
this same problem. . .

Hi Everyone,
            I am having a problem with a virtual file include. I am
creating a set of web pages for our own use. These pages will have a set
of menu options on the left side of the screen. These options will all
be the same throughout the pages. So what I have done is created the
menu options as a text file. I use a virtual include like <!--#include
virtual="/customer_service/sidemenu.txt"-->, to copy the menu html
source onto the page. This works great when the include is on a static
web page. Here's the problem, I have a CGI program that writes a list of
item categories. The HTML it uses has the include in it. When the
program runs, it doesn't recognize the include. I think this is because
the source is loaded into the memory and it is not treated as a standard
"static" page. Is there a way around this?
