How to have the 'Date Last Modified' appear dynamically on our web pages

If you wish to supply the name of the file include these two lines of code in your HTML document:

    <!--#config timefmt="%A %B %d, %Y" -->
    This file last modified <!--#flastmod file="ssi.shtml" -->

Of course, you will need to replace the ssi.shtml with the actual name of the file that you're referring to. This can be inconvenient if you're just looking for a generic piece of code that you can paste into any file, so you probably want to use the LAST_MODIFIED variable instead, then insert these two lines of code into your document:

    <!--#config timefmt="%D" -->
    This file last modified <!--#echo var="LAST_MODIFIED" -->
