Determines the MIME type of a file by looking at a few bytes of its contents¶
This module determines the MIME type of files in the same way the Unix file(1) command works: it looks at the first few bytes of the file. mod_mimemagic.c is based on mod_mime_magic.c of httpd 2.0.
This module is a 3rd party module and is not included in the official distribution. You can download the patch from here:
- source: http://code.google.com/p/lighttpd-improved/source/browse/trunk/src/mod_mimemagic.c
- Patch For lighttpd 1.4.26: http://lighttpd-improved.googlecode.com/files/lighttpd-1.4.26-mod_mimemagic.patch
path of magic.mime file. can use same magic file of httpd server
more info about format of magic file is at http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_mime_magic.html#format
mimemagic.file = "/etc/httpd/conf/magic"
Default: not set
By default mod_mimemagic only process files which extensions aren't covered by mime.type setting.
If you want to override global mime.type, set mimemagic.override-global-mimetype to "enable"
mimemagic.override-global-mimetype = "enable"
