    Default SHTML Error

    I am new user here and am finding a set of new errors. The pages load fine, but the error is:

    [Sat Aug 29 09:53:58 2015] [error] [client] exec used but not allowed in /home/********/public_html/years/72.shtml, referer: http://www.*********/index.php


    I have found this:

    Sounds like you have a Server Side Include (.shtml) file that is doing

    <!--#exec cmd="./myprogram"-->

    For this to be allowed you need:

    Options -IncludesNoExec

    in your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file.
    Or the /etc/httpd/conf.d/mysite.conf file.

    Notice that this directive is a double negative. Its saying
    "not not exec" which means "exec" is allowed.

    Of course, allowed exec has big security issues so you should only
