Subject Re: [users@httpd] HTML Documents Showing Up As Code Rather Than Web Page
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2005 16:39:40 GMT
So in one case you're using http, and in another case the browser is reading
the file directly from the file system and Apache is not involved. My guess
is that Boyle Owen was right, and there is a mime-type problem. In the
latter case, the browser gets to decide what the mime type is because it has
no other hints. In the former case, the server is sending a mime-type (I'm
guessing text/plain) that makes browsers think it is a plain text file. IE
apparently doesn't care :)

So, look at the default mime type and make sure it is text/html
