View Full Version : [ubuntu] Apache2-svn Mime Troubles

April 5th, 2010, 08:47 PM
Hi guys,

I've got an apache-svn server up and running fine but I'm struggling with an irritating problem. I need the apache server to display .vbs, .cs., vb., .sh, .pl., .c, .h, .cpp, etc, etc files in the browser. Whenever our users click on a script they get a download dialog instead of the script being displayed in the browser as plain/text.

I have added:

AddType text/plain .vbs

Into /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/mime.conf but it seems to be getting ignored.

Anyone have any ideas how I can tell apache to treat script files as plain-text?

Resolved... have to set each svn:mime-type property on every file in the repository for this to work.

For additional detail, here's my writeup (http://www.nealosis.com/blog/post/Create-a-Subversion-Repository-for-Windows-Clients.aspx) of how to get apache to serve code files as plain/text in the browser.
