Assuming the .cgi extension has been globally mapped to the handler
"cgi-script" (from mod_cgi) and normally the .html extension is mapped to
the MIME-type "text/html", then the files *.cgi.html will be associated with
both the "cgi-script" handler and "text/html" MIME-type. The handler will
have precedence here and process the file as a cgi script ..
So you need to either override the handler with another handler or in this
case I'd say you want to remove any handler association :
That should leave it to be handled via the default handler .
