Server Includes

Server Includes were shut off on my site at:

Warning: include() [function.include]: URL file-access is disabled in  
the server configuration in /home/lookout/h2/cthilges/www/index.php on  
line 2

Warning: include( )  
[function.include]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be  
found in /home/lookout/h2/cthilges/www/index.php on line 2

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening  
' ' for inclusion  
(include_path='.:') in /home/lookout/h2/cthilges/www/index.php on line 2

I use this feature so that i can have a basic template file for my site  
with only two includes:

the content

With an absolute url as well i never have to count ../../../

What security reason is this disabled?
It seems to be a very convenient and irreplaceable feature.
I add pages of flashy site code this way.

Thank you,

Why are you including using http protocol?  Each one creates an  
unnecessary call to the server to handle the include.

Rather, use:

   <?php header=$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . "/~cthilges/header.php"; ?>

You don't have to count ../../../ this way, either.
