this is driving me nuts!
i single out the problem based on your suggestions but i still get no luck.
The paths are correct. I inserted test.php in "forums/" in replace of ssi.php, and it works!
however, for some reason, inserting just 'forums/test.php' in the include did not work, i had to insert "$SERVER['DOCUMENTROOT'] aswell to make it work...
At this point, i thought the culprit must be the ssi.php; so i went ahead and setup a localhost and
include it with the direct link, http://mydomain.com/forums/SSI.php?ssi_function=boardNews;board=2.0;limit=1;length=2500, just to see
if it gives me an error. Guess what, it works!
maybe this is an issue with DH's php setup, and i need to enable some options in order for this to work? I've heard you can
install a custom php in your account but i'm not really good a that.
i know i'm one step closer nailing this thing!
