Mime Types

Mime  Types represent file types as presented to your web browser.   The Mime Type option in the Control Panel allows you to specify which  types of files you can open with your web browser.


Regardless of the mime types you set up to be opened by your web browser,  your browser can only open files of types that it supports,  either in  the program itself or through the use of plug-ins or other helper applications.


Adding Java file types does not enable Java on a domain.

In order to use the Mime Types option, the Microsoft FrontPage   Extensions option must be disabled.  If it is enabled, then you must  use your version of Microsoft FrontPage to handle mime types.  If the  Microsoft FrontPage Extensions option is enabled, you will not have access  to the Mime Types option.


How  To Add or Change Mime Types:

1.  From the Control Panel, select the Mime Type icon.   The Mime Types Manager opens.


2.  Enter your mime type and extension in the form entitled Mime Type
