[REBOL] Re: Problem with Apache and CGI returning text/plain

From: rebol665:ifrance at: 11-May-2002 11:04

Hi, Thanks for your script. It works for me too ! My problem was the .r extension of my script. The same script with a .cgi works fine. I have found an explanation for that in the Apache FAQ. For more détails see : ( In brief, it is a "bug" in MSIE with HTTP text/plain document. MSIE do not trust the explicit text/plain content-type and use the file extension instead. In my case, the .r extension caused the CGI results to be downloaded instead of displayed. So I replaced the .r extension with .txt or .cgi. and now it works fine.
