Description Reuben Farrelly 2005-11-21 01:38:40 EST
At present if we attempt to serve up OpenOffice documents with Apache, the mime
type is not recognised - it defaults to txt/plain:


[root@tornado ~]# telnet www 80
Connected to www.
Escape character is '^]'.
HEAD /files/Resume%20-%20NZ.odt HTTP/1.0
Host: drupal.internal.net

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Mon, 21 Nov 2005 06:28:01 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.54 (Fedora)

ETag: "6bc-66e6-2d86e7c0"
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 26342
Cache-Control: max-age=86400
Expires: Tue, 22 Nov 2005 06:28:01 GMT
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8

This is a problem because the client browser cannot handle the unknown format,
and we end up with rubbish in the browser (in my case, Firefox).

A document describing the new mime types is here:


Please add these to /etc/mime.types so that they are system wide.  I think this
would be a better idea than adding them to httpd.conf.
