    OK im planning to do my new site in php/mySQL.

    i have a paid for stat tracking system which uses SSI.

    Can i include the SSI in a php file?

    Also - would someone be willing to give me a sort of step by step guide on how to run php/mySQL on my own PC, for testing purposes? is this possible even ?

    Yep running it on your own PC is possible, I recomend looking at the tutorial on SP at http://www.webmasterbase.com

    As for the stats package, what line do you have to include in every page? If you post it then I will tell you what PHP you need to insert into your pages in place of the SSI.

    I do believe the following code should work for you:

    <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">code/font><HR><pre>
    virtual "/stats/stats.cgi";
    [/code]

    or if PHP is not an Apache module (i.e. It doesn't work or errors on you):

    <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">code/font><HR><pre>
    echo passthru "/stats/stats.cgi";
    [/code]

    If not then let me know, but I have used passthru before to do the same job.
