netbasiks.com Technical Support: Mime Types

 

Mime Types

What are MIME Types?

MIME stands for Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions. MIME Types are a standard for describing different types of information. This was originally meant to be used to specify encoding for different types of information into text. This made it possible to send them as email

The standard MIME is also used in other types of communication where there is a need for specifying which type of information is used. This could be your local operating system or a web server.


.htaccess

Since we run an Apache server on a Linux based system, you can set the mime type by adding a small file to your HTML directory on the server. The file name and contents are as follows:
 

file name:

.htaccess

file contents:

AddType audio/midi mid

Note: If you are testing changes in the MIME type of your MIDI files, clear the disk cache by going to Network Preferences under the Options menu in Netscape. Otherwise Netscape will continue to use the old MIME types from the cache.


Below is a list of every standard mime type.
