Passing SSI variables between pages


I am experienced with using PHP to create dynamic pages and in the past have created one menu page that includes files below the menu. When I want to go to a different page, I usually have a link to the same page with a query string that specifies the file to include, then get that variable from the query string to include it.

I am now working with server side includes to create dynamic pages since this is all my host provides (that anc CGI support). I know how to set variables when a page is loaded, but what I want to know is how to something like I described above.

Any help would be appreciated and if you need more details, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

You can pass them using:

path/to/url.php?a=<!--#echo var="SERVER_NAME" -->

Will be path/to/url.php?

I'm not sure what that means; I don't have PHP support.

What I want to pass is the path to the files I want to include relative to the main file.
