server-side includes in a managed dedicated server

Hi there,

My (ASP-JVScript) pages worked fine at a shared hosting environment with lines such as:

<!--#include file="directoryAtRoot/myfile.asp" -->  
and
<!--#include file="../directoryAtRoot/myfile.asp" -->

But now, that I want to migrate to a managed dedicated server (at GoDaddy), the first option still works fine, but the second one doesn´t.  (It does not help changing "file" to "virtual", by the way.)

I´ve tried to put the whole path (obtained through Server.MapPath(".")), but it was in vain... please help me on how to proceed!

Thank you,
fskilnik.

You are probably trying to go outside your root directory/parent paths are turned off.

Why not just
<!--#include virtual="/directoryAtRoot/myfile.asp" -->
