I managed to get the list of files in the directory, however I cannot read any of them. I tried so many things, changed the pathway manually, through the command, executed multiple commands etc. I can't seem to make it work. Any help?

Let your browser do the reading. If that doesn't ring a bell, you might want to learn how a web-server works.

SSI


This challenge is completed very much like Basic 7 with the exception that instead of *nix commands, it uses Server Side Includes (SSI). When you play Stephanie’s program you should notice that the output file has a .shtml extension, and make sure to pay attention to which directory your command is running!

Good luck!



Do not post spoilers!


Pay attention to only "..very much like Basic 7" "it uses Server Side Includes (SSI)" and little bit of googling on one particular "command" will do the trick! ;)

i get this page when i enter my command :

If you are trying to use server side includes to solve the challenge, you are on the right track: but I have limited the commands allowed to ones relevant towards finding the password file for security reasons(because there will always be that one person who decides to execute some rather nasty commands). So please manipulate your code so that it is a little more pertaining to the level.

is this mean that the command is wrong?

I'm not sure, but I think that constitutes as a spoiler, Ammke. Also: yes.

It's alright, the text comes directly from the challenge.

I'm new here, I managed to figure out basic 1-6 by myself, I had to do some study to figure out 7, and now I'm completely stumped on 8! I thought I had it when I got this exact same message! Oh well, I'm going to take a break and come back to this later.

I have tried every variation of the command I can think of and I still get the "you're on the right track" message. Any suggestions?
