Description Szépe Viktor 2013-04-03 15:26:49 UTC
without apache include module the templates won't word by themselves
please add IfModule:

<IfModule mod_include.c>
Options               IncludesNOEXEC Indexes MultiViews
AddHandler            server-parsed .html
Comment 1 Szépe Viktor 2013-04-03 15:28:51 UTC
i mean "work" (not word)
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2013-04-03 18:31:32 UTC
While the templates really do need mod_include to work, I don't think adding an IfModule for it would be a good idea because templates' SSI processing is not really optional -- without it the templates will end up being served not only as invalid HTML without header and footer, but also with necessary parts missing.
Comment 3 Szépe Viktor 2013-04-03 23:09:48 UTC
Yes I know that.
I've seen this "effect" and it took half an hour to get to mod_include.
If there would have been an IfModule, I've been recognised that it was not enabled.
Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2013-04-04 13:12:18 UTC
IfModule is plain wrong for expressing *requirements*. In my opinion documenting them in comments would be acceptable if such a list existed -- mod_include is not the only required one.
