MIME types (ISPmanager)

From ISPWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

When a user requests any resource from a web-server, the server should provide the file type of its answer to inform Client browser how to process it. Every file type has a corresponding line - MIME-type (Multpurpose Internet Mail Extension).

A server normally comes supplied with a rather full set of MIME types. For example, most servers handle MIME-type text/html as htm, html and shtml extensions. Thus, your browser interprets all the files with this extension as HTML files. However, as long as new technologies come out, you may need to use new file types.

This module can be used to manage MIME types for the selected WWW domain.
