As far as I know you have to add the following to your httpd.conf file. You
will also need to set a directory to run them out of. Not sure if you can do
this to the DocumentRoot or not? Basically here is an example:

Alias /jini1_1/ "/var/jini1_1/"

<Directory "/var1/jini1_1">
    Options Indexes Includes ExecCGI
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

# To use server-parsed HTML files
AddType text/html .shtml
AddHandler server-parsed .shtml

This will allow http:/ to run CGI's and SSI's. The
#exec directive is enabled in this example. If you want to disable this then
replace 'Includes' with 'IncludesNOEXEC'.

I believe that is all there is to it. Make the changes and restart Apache.
