Subject [users@httpd] mime module in Apache
Date Tue, 02 Nov 2004 22:32:25 GMT
Using apache 1.3.31 on Debian 3.0 (kernel 2.6)

When I try to add the following line:

AddModule mod_mime.c

to /etc/apache/modules.conf I get an error trying to start up apache.
Running config test I get:

> apachectl configtest
> Syntax error on line 8 of /etc/apache/modules.conf:
> Cannot add module via name 'mod_mime.c': not in list of loaded modules

What do I need to do?

Also, let me explain why I am adding this module. Perhaps I'm going 
about it wrong.
We are now hosting a Russian language web page. When you go to that 
page it won't start up in Russian no matter what you do on the client 
side.  I thought there was a problem with the "charset=" line in the 
html file. But then I was told that the problem is that you have to 
enable apache to use a foreign language as a possible default language.

One thing I did was add the following text in httpd.conf for this 
virtual host:

<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /var/www/VirtualHost/
DefaultLanguage ru
LanguagePriority ru

But I also noticed the docs on Content Negotiation at:
which led me to the idea that I need to install a mime module. Anyhow, 
I'm quite confused at this point and hope somebody can give me some
