The company I work for uses a number of hosting areas on different servers for different parts of our process. To begin with, we build things on our local machines and test them in localhost. Then, we push to a "QA" server where the site can be viewed; finally, we push the latest version to a "production" server.
I'm using a
.htc behavior file (CSS3 PIE) to get IE to comply with CSS3 properties. I'm seeing that work locally, but I don't think I saw it working on QA once it had been pushed. I've seen things like this happen when a hosting solution doesn't pull
.htc files up correctly. The solution I usually use is to include a
.htacces file with:
AddType text/x-component .htc. While this usually works, the QA server doesn't have a
.htaccess file, and my superiors are concerned that adding one could cause unforeseen problems.
You can see what I'm trying to do here
Can adding a blank
.htaccess file to hosting that doesn't have one cause problems? If not, will adding
AddType text/x-component .htc cause any problems?
