Overview

MIME types relay information to the browser about how to handle file extensions. MIME types can allow visitors’ browsers to handle new technologies as they become available.

To add new MIME types to your web server, define the name, directory, and file extension that correspond to the MIME type.

Create a MIME Type

To add a MIME type, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter the name of the file type’s handler in the MIME Type text box.
    • For example, application/cgi represents the handler for the .cgi file extension.
  2. Enter the file extension in the Extension(s) text box.
    • A file extension represents the letters after the dot (.) in a file name. For example, filename.fileextension.
  3. Click Add.
