Subject [users@httpd] gz files served through apache
Date Fri, 27 May 2005 10:40:56 GMT


I have apache (2.0.46) running on windows, with a CGI perl script that serves up files based
on a posted parameter.

This works perfectly for all types of files, except *.gz files. Apache seems to be doing something
on the server, maybe it's trying to uncompress it on the server side? Eventually get the "Internal
Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your
request." error.

I've had a look in the httpd.conf file, but can't see any directives/modules/whatever in there
that would be doing this? Does anyone have any clues?
