Aside from the obvious test of making a .shtml file to test if SSI is installed and configured on my web server, should it be by default?

I am kind of busy right now and don't wanna mess around with testing things that I don't need yet, but my Admin takes a while to get things installed and configured, so it'd be nice to give him the heads up in advance if it's gonna be at all complicated.

The "mod_include" apache module is compiled with the Apache by default. Only thing left is to properly configure it in the httpd.conf Take a look here for more info how to enable it: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_include.html

If your admin has overrides available, just whack these lines into .htaccess

AddType text/html .shtml
AddHandler server-parsed .shtml

If he doesn't allow overrides, he's a good admin and you should tell him how much you admire his skills and buy him beer or cookies or whatever till he makes the exception just for you.

The cool thing is that I am the only one that works with the web server. There was a brief time when I had root access. When the old sysAdmin quit to start his own consulting firm (ridiculous concept, he didn't even know how to use a shell) he left me the root PW and I played around a lot. Now we have a new admin, and he has tightened up security a lot, but he still pretty much is there to do what I tell him. Thankfully I have read access on the httpd.conf file and so a little research revealed that everything should be in order without need for overrides (I think). Once I get my database project running with live data I will need to learn how to password protect a page, but I'm sure there's a zillion tuts out there for that.
