Installing the Database for Application Deployment - Mime-Type Configuration
(Page 4 of 4 )

The last line in the configuration file (Listing 12-1),include "mimetypes.conf", tells LightTPD to include the mime-type configuration file. This configures LightTPD so that it responds with the correctContent-TypeHTTP header matching the requested file. For example, the web server sends the headerContent-Type: application/pdfwhen a browser requests a PDF file with the extension.pdf.

Save the configuration shown in Listing 12-2 inconfig/mimetypes.conf.
