Re: Proxy Servers and Suffix types
On www-proxy, you (Monica Berko) write:
>The CERN httpd User's guide in section 4.7 mentions that cern_httpd has extensive built-in suffinx definitions. Can anyone tell me where these are listed? I had to add an AddType definition for .hqx files whereas I thought it could have quite possibly been built in.
Use the hypertext version. In
there's a reference to the list of predefined suffixes,
In trying to set up a side-wide list of suffixes, I was surprised to learn
that CERN httpd doesn't refer to the mime.types file used by WWW browsers
and the NCSA httpd daemon. I decided to maintain a single mime.types file
and use a script to convert it to the AddType directive used by CERN httpd.
Some questions remain:
is there an 'authoritative' list of suffixes? a list of example files?
if not, can we join efforts in creating one?
how do I register or announce my own MIME types?
why doesn't CERN httpd use a mime.types file?
since its inception, this list has effectively been a user support list for
CERN httpd. would it not be preferable to create a new mailing list for
this purpose, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org? especially now that
email@example.com has ceased to answer questions.
