What to include?

By including a php file using php.ini, you can replace the headers in your html with dynamic headers.

Include a php file that contains a function to replace html with different html. You include a file from your php.ini like auto_prepend_file /web/

config.php example from: Effective way to update your blog's header scripts

function Config($page)  {
$googleAnalytics = '<!-- Google Analytics -->
<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">_uacct = "UA-188760-13";urchinTracker();</script>
$quantcast = '<!-- Quantcast  -->
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">_qacct="p-0dzSWakPjpGqM";quantserve();</script>
<noscript><img src="" style="display: none" height="1" width="1" alt="Quantcast"/></noscript>
$mybloglog = '<!-- MyBlogLog -->
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
$pages  = array(); // Add pages (relative to the public site root) that should be ignored
$ip    = array(); // Add IP addresses that should be ignored, for instance you don't want to track yourself or your company's visit to your blog.
if (
  strpos($page,'frameset') !== false ||
  (!empty($ip) && in_array($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'], $ip)) ||
  (!empty($pages) && in_array((isset($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) && !empty($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']))?$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']:$_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'], $pages))
{ return $page; }
$replace = array
  return str_replace($replace, "n{$googleAnalytics}nn{$quantcast}nn{$mybloglog}r</head>", $page);



Specifies the name of a file that is automatically parsed before the main file. The file is included as if it was called with the include() function, so include_path is used.The special value none disables auto-prepending.

Note: If the script is terminated with exit(), auto-append will not occur.

Hacking and Hackers

The use of "hacker" to mean "security breaker" is a confusion on the part of the mass media. We hackers refuse to recognize that meaning, and continue using the word to mean someone who loves to program, someone who enjoys playful cleverness, or the combination of the two. See my article, On Hacking.
