Patch to magic file

Experimentation with mod_mime_magic revealed it does not detect some important MIME types, including PNG and SWF. After adding several extra lines to the default docs/conf/magic, this was rectified.

I have opted to share these additions, as it appears the default conf/magic file that ships with httpd-2 has not been updated in approximately five years.

Added to trunk as r1180725, except for the second PNG signature. Why did you include that? PNG should always begin with 0x89.
Comment 2 Stefan Fritsch 2012-02-26 17:01:21 UTC
fixed in 2.4.1
