Odd that. First of all anyway, lose the .htaccess file - it's best to try and
get it working with the proper config first. Also, if you can, turn off any
AllowOverride directives in the hierarchy that might affect this. Even if you're
*certain* there aren't, you'll be mightily annoyed if you find a .htaccess file
causing a conflict later on. If it's a non-production server, turn 'em all off!
Aside from that, there's not much I can tell without seeing the config file(s).
The only thing I can think of right now is that you might have commented out or
deleted the LoadModule and/or AddModule directives for mod_include by mistake.
If it's not that, and it's still not working after you've deleted the .htaccess
file and cleaned up AllowOverride, I would need to see the config file(s).
If you want to show them to me, stick 'em in DocumentRoot and post a link here,
or off-list if you're worried about Bad People[tm] looking at them
By the way, permissions, users and groups should be meaningless with SSI, unless
you're using XBitHack. Which you probably aren't?
