    Question SSI, static html and server load

    There is a web site with ~3000 static pages (.html). Until recently the updates were rare (once in 36 months), so having static html was ok.

    Now, the situation has changed, I need to update the web site more often, but the links structure can't be changed, because there are tons of external links.

    One solution is to implement SSI to load ads, partner links, and a news wire rss on the fly. It is possible to instruct Apache to parse .html files as .shtml, however, I was told this can become a serious strain for the server.

    So here is the question: will a web site with around 10000 daily pageviews (~3000 unique visitors daily) overload the server if .html files are parsed to include server side files?

    If yes, then are there any workarounds that would allow keeping the old link structure while implementing SSI?

    It shouldn't. Worth a try at least.
