Subject Re: Cannot open ppt files with Apache/1.3.20
Date Tue, 13 Aug 2002 01:51:20 GMT
Something else that I noticed.

Putting the temp.ppt file under www.mysite.com works just fine i.e., I can
open it in a browser window.

Why can't the personal webpages display the ppt files properly? Is there a
configuration parameter somewhere that I need to change?

Thanks,
Rahul
