You missed one little part of my suggestion: "the directory where the HTML pages
lives has "Options Includes" ".

It is the html file that needs SSI, so you need to activate the
Includes option and the INCLUDES filter for that directory, not for
the cgi-bin directory.

Also, I told you to use #include virtual, not #exec virtual. The
latter doesn't exist, as far as I know.
