Subject [users@httpd] Error downloading *.gz files
Date Wed, 28 Sep 2005 12:13:02 GMT

Using Apache server running on windows machine, 

Have problem while downloading any of the *.gz files from the webserver, following is the
error, when the open fails.
The file has all the proper permission. No issues download all other files types (.zip, .tar

I tried overwriting the MIME types as below, but no help.

AddEncoding x-gzip gz tgz
AddType application/x-compress .Z
AddType application/x-gzip .gz .tgz

No errors are produced in the error log, when the download fails.

Appreciate any help/pointers or solutions to resolve this issue.
