assuming the unix server is running apache, the default extension for
server-parsed files (which is what you need for your includes to work)
is .shtml 
But depending on the configuration even this may not be switched on, you
may be able to add a line to the .htacess file, in the relevant

AddHandler server-parsed .shtml
or you may have to contact the server admin to enable it for you (or
enable you to do so). While he/she is at it, you may be able to pick
whatever file extension works best for you: .html or whatever.
