Subject [users@httpd] IE8 thinks SHTML is "text.html"
Date Fri, 27 Jan 2012 21:31:10 GMT
I posted this originally at
thought maybe I'd ask here:


I'm working on a website, implemented as shtml, and when I try to load the
home page ( from IE8, it says it can't
open the file because it transferred as Content-Type "text.html". The page
loads fine from Chrome, and  in Firefox.

httpd.conf has:

Options Includes Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl
AddType text/html .shtml
AddHandler server-parsed .shtml

and further down:

AddType text/html .shtml
AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/xml
text/javascript application/javascript

Are the "AddType" and "AddOutputFilter" transposed? Based on this
information, would you know why IE8 would think .shtml files are being sent
as Content-Type: "text.html"? Is there a way to globally ask Apache, "If
you're going to transfer as 'text.html', use 'text/html' instead?
