Description Dave Hodder 2002-04-06 16:20:28 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,

Bug 7795 isn't actually a duplicate -- it's the same issue, but for Apache 2.0 
rather than 1.3.  If there's a future Apache 1.3.x release, can it include an 
updated mime.types file?

(The change to the DirectoryIndex directive is less important at this stage, so 
can be ignored.)

Thanks again.

It was already fixed in 1.3.25.
Note, that the development now happens in the 2.1 branch. 1.3 and 2.0 are mainly
in maintenance stage. That means, common changes normally apply to 2.1 and will
be backported then.
