Question: What is the difference between a dynamic or static directory?

Answer: A dynamic directory is where all pages are generated by the scripts on the fly. In other words, the scripts generate all content shown to end users on the fly.

A static directory is where the complete directory tree with all it’s pages are generated beforehand as ordinary HTML files. This enables users to browse your directory like they would ordinary web pages – resulting in saving a lot of CPU resources on your host. It also makes your Directory friendly to Search Engine spiders. Highly recommended.
