Please add MIME type for MapGuide package to the download server's mime.types

Reported by: jbirch Owned by: sac@…

Component: SysAdmin Keywords:


Could the newly-established MIME type for MapGuide packages please be added to the vhost configuration for the site with an AddType directive?

I think this should look something like:

AddType application/vnd.osgeo.mapguide.package .mgp


This will allow our Internet Explorer users to download our sample data packages with the correct file extension instead of being prompted to save a .zip file. This issue has caused a considerable problem for new users, who often attempt to unzip the contents of the package. Using this MIME type on the download server will provide a considerably enhanced initial experience for our users.
