Actually, the cgi-script part has nothing to do with SSI, it has another

Anyway, you don't provide enough information about what "you can't get it
work".  But you can try it by inspect one or more of these questions:

1. Do you have your html filenames end with .shtml?
2. Do you have Includes entry in Options directive in
   <Directory /path/to/ssi/directory>...</Directory> directive?
3. Do you have Options entry in AllowOverride directive so you
   can put Options Includes in htaccess file?
4. Do you have index.shtml entry in DirectoryIndex directive?
5. Do you use SSI syntax in html files correctly?
6. Do your check your error log file?

Please be more descrictive.
