Description Enrico Scholz 2000-08-09 19:11:34 EDT
When enabling the mod_mime_magic module, the clause

| <IfModule mod_mime_magic.c>
|     MIMEMagicFile share/magic
| </IfModule>

(/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:552) will be evaluated. Effectively it tries to
read `/etc/httpd/share/magic'.  This fails because the magic file is
installed in /etc/httpd/conf/magic.

Either change the MIMEMagicFile entry to this position or let it point to
the more extended /usr/share/magic file.

Because both magic files are having the same purpose, one of them seems to
be superfluously (see #14741 also).
Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-08-14 11:16:27 EDT
nalin:  Make sure it reads /usr/share/magic.
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-08-15 16:57:33 EDT
Should be fixed in apache-1.3.12-23 and later.
