Subject Re: [users@httpd] HTML Documents Showing Up As Code Rather Than Web Page
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2005 17:51:43 GMT
No. If the server cannot determine the mime type it will use the default as
expressed by DefaultType
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/core.html#defaulttype

This should be set to text/html
