  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 2
Subject:   editing user.conf versus httpd.conf file

If you can't get SSI working on Mac OS X, try looking for a special user.config file which contains settings for sites in user folders.

I spent all morning trying to enable SSI to no avail. I was convinced my edits to the httpd.conf file weren't working. When I searched my hard drive for the string "httpd" (using unix command 'locate' since Finder's search won't see folders like "private") I came across some .conf files prepended with various usernames. I found one for myself (zimboden), so I opened it and found inside:

<Directory "/Users/zimboden/Sites/">
Options Indexes MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

This looked awfully similar to the entries that I was editing in the httpd.conf file, so on a lark I changed the Options line to read:

Options Indexes MultiViews +Includes

and VOILA! finally SSI started working for me!
