Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache/2.0.47 - AIX - DEFLATE enabled - Content-Encoding for a page - shows blank - although it's gzip encoded
Date Tue, 05 May 2009 11:20:16 GMT
Hi Brians,
It's been sometime on this issue for me to respond.
How can my application override the Content-Encoding setting done by
Apache?

I believe Apache sets this header after doing compression.
The issue is Apache is doing compression and the "Content-Encoding"
header is not getting set.

Can we by some means force this through Apache?

I found that - by forcibly changing the "Content-Encoding=gzip" using
Fiddler Web Proxy - it works properly.

So, is there a server-side method - a light-weight web-proxy or another
way Apache can handle it?

Thanks and Regards,
Arabinda

Quoting:

That's irrelevant to us...it's a parameter to your applet, not to the
server, unless you've specifically configured your server to look for
that. My guess is one of the arguments your passing in the URL are
telling your application to set the content-encoding, and it's doing
it wrong, in which case no-one here can help you. If you have strong
reason to believe that your application is not responsible, then get
back to us and let us know why you think that.

Cheers,
-Brian
