I have some files that have been uploaded to a folder called
/Download however the have no extension e.g.
File1 I have tried adding a
/Download/Web.Config file with the following specified
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <configuration> <system.webServer> <staticContent> <mimeMap fileExtension=".*" mimeType="application/octet-stream" /> </staticContent> </system.webServer> </configuration>
But with this in place I still receive this error from IIS:
HTTP Error 404.17 - Not Found The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler.
Most likely causes: The request matched a wildcard mime map. The request is mapped to the static file handler. If there were different pre-conditions, the request will map to a different handler.
Things you can try: If you want to serve this content as a static file, add an explicit MIME map.
