Subject Re: [users@httpd] How to force CRLF on non .txt files when directory browsing?
Date Tue, 09 Feb 2010 19:47:25 GMT
Tried that in my conf/httpd.conf file.  And restarted the server.
AddType text/plain .log
AddType text/plain .properties

As I understand, it informs the browser what to do with it.  And that's
good.  But I think this is a server side problem.  It still isn't using the
Windows convention of CR/LF.  It's like FTPing the file using binary versus
as text.  When I FTP it with text, I get the CR/LF.  Binary and it wraps.
In this case, the HTTP server seems to be doing a binary transfer of the
file.  I want it to treat it as text.

But if I rename the file to *.log.txt, then the HTTP server and browser
handles it correctly.  So the HTTP server is doing something different
natively with .txt files
