Re: [Catacomb] Re: Content-type question.
I fixed the problem.
I asked Greg about the ap_sub_req_lookup_uri and he said it will call mod_mime. As he said, ap_sub_req_lookup_uri calls mod_mime's find_ct. find_ct checks rec->filename.
For some reason, in the catacomb directory area, always the rec->filename is /usr/local/apache2/repos even though I try to put .../repos/aa.gif or something.
I read mod_mime source and figured that there is an option, ModMimeUsePathInfo on. After set the option, ap_sub_req_lookup_uri works fine. [Thank Greg!]
So we should set up catacomb directory like this:
Catacomb try to get the content-type from client and set it. If there is no content-type, Catacomb set content type by calling ap_sub_req_lookup_uri.
