Wow, took me some time to find out the answer.
I found pretty quickly the mechanic, but I wasn't using the command in the right way.

Keep getting this message and I dont know how to manipulate my command


If you are trying to use server side includes to solve the challenge, you are on the right track: but I have limited the commands allowed to ones relevant towards finding the password file for security reasons(because there will always be that one person who decides to execute some rather nasty commands). So please manipulate your code so that it is a little more pertaining to the level.

Very Cool!

Haven't heard of SSI before, but learned everything I needed to know (for now) through that link that was shared previously (https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/ssi.html)

Once SSI was understood (I'm sure I'm on a most basic level still lol), you just need to take your time and refresh some basic Unix commands. understanding *orthogonality* in Unix commands is important here .. (at least that is what made it click for me!)

Good luck yall and thanks for the lunchtime fun :D

This was doing my head in for an hour (very nooby here). I had no problem identifying the ssi command (and UNIX command) needed to get list of files but everything I tried got the 'incorrect, but close command' page. I went through a lot of the comments understanding what I needed just not exactly how to approach - the comment which made it click for me was

"3) Understand ls can accept relative pathnames. Understand relative pathnames (esp ..)"

And opening the file in browser was the same as we have already done before this point, no issue - I hope this clarifies this somewhat for everyone who, like I was, is very close but not quite there.
