Topic: Using Server side includes with mongrel_rails

I'd like to be able to serve up an .shtml file from the /public folder of my app using mongrel_rails.

I have added SSI directives to my httpd.conf, so that my virtual hosts look like

<VirtualHost 1.1.1.1:443>
    ServerName server00.domain.com
    ServerAlias server.domain.com

    ServerAdmin nbs@listhost.domain.com

    ProxyPass / http://localhost:8000/
    ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8000/
    ProxyPreserveHost on
    Options +Includes
    AddType text/html .shtml
    AddHandler server-parsed .shtml

    SSLEngine on
    SSLProtocol all -SSLv2
    SSLCipherSuite ALL:!ADH:!EXPORT:!SSLv2:RC4+RSA:+HIGH:+MEDIUM:+LOW
    SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName server00.domain.com
    ServerAlias server00.domain.com
    ServerAdmin nbs@listhost.domain.com
    Options +Includes
    AddType text/html .shtml
    AddHandler server-parsed .shtml

    ProxyPass / http://localhost:8000/
    ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8000/
    ProxyPreserveHost on
</VirtualHost>

it is still not serving up .shtml - any suggestions on what I can do to get this to work?  Thanks
