By default, httpd contains the following configuration:
<IfModule mime_module> # # TypesConfig points to the file containing the list of mappings from # filename extension to MIME-type. # TypesConfig conf/mime.types ... </IfModule>
This file contains a mapping from filename extensions to MIME types. Normally this is what I want, but I'd like to disable mapping for reverse proxies. How can I instruct mime_module to process
/* but exclude
mime_module contains the following line:
application/x-msdownload exe dll com bat msi
The application being proxied accepts
PUT /firstname.lastname@example.org and returns
200 OK without setting
Content-Type or a response body. According to http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics-24#section-184.108.40.206 this is perfectly legal (since there is no response body).
mime_module thinks the URL applies to a
.com file and mistakenly applies
Content-Type: application/x-msdownload. Since I know that
/proxy/rest/ never returns files, I'd like to disable
mime_module for that path.
