You don't need a server-side script for this if you are on Apache.  A simple SSI will work too.

TeknikDev,

At minimum, you need a server.  Plain old HTML previewed locally has no method to get a date or time.  Javascript is the only option at this point.

If you are running Apache, you can enable server-side includes and use that in plain HTML (no PHP or ASP needed).

Anytime your ISP advertises PHP, MySQL with hosting, they are running Apache.  So you can use SSI.

Instructions to test (and the date command) are here:

http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum13/546.htm

Basically, put the following code in your page to test:

<!--#ECHO var="DATE_LOCAL" -->

If that doesn't return the date, you will need to add some commands in an .htaccess file per the link above.

The server is likely to be either Linux or Windows.

Try and find out which one it is.
