Description Dave Hodder 2002-04-06 16:16:14 UTC
Would it be possible for someone to add support for RFC 3236 (the
'application/xhtml+xml' media type registration) into the default Apache
server installation?  It's missing in both version 1.3.x and 2.0.x.

Firstly, the registration should appear inside the mime.types file:

    application/xhtml+xml		xhtml xht

Secondly the DirectoryIndex directive inside httpd.conf (or all the
http*.conf* files) should have a reference to 'index.xhtml', e.g.:

    DirectoryIndex index.xhtml index.html

... or perhaps:

    DirectoryIndex index.xhtml index.html index.xhtml.var index.html.var

Many thanks,

I've added the type to mime.types, but I'm not going to change the default
DirectoryIndex.  I see no reason to do that unless we see this type becoming
the predominant default type.  For now, people can edit their own config
files, just like they do for php, etc.

Thanks for using Apache!
