I'm having the same problem, just can't get SSI working, just get the [an error occurred while processing this directive]. The SSI status is activated, and the pages I'm working with work fine on-line, and they are all .SHTML. I've been through the httpd.conf file, everything looks fine there. Any assistance would be great.
It's OK, I've found out the problem. Moved everything into the htdocs directory, works fine now. I had my files in a sub-directory off the htdocs, could more than likely have fixed it if I had changed the include calls to show the path of the sub-directory
