I've got a .tar.gz file inside the www structure and I'd like to move it
over to the downloads directory.
The problem is that some people are linking directly to the file in the
www directory. Therefore I'd like to display the tar.gz as an html file
and tell the users that they should update their bookmarks yada yada
yada and give them the new link.
So far, I've tried by creating a text file called test.tar.gz with the
<?php header( "Content-type: text/html" ); ?>
<p>This file should display as html.</p>
When loading this file, mozilla tried to download it. Of course, since
the headers sent are Content-Type: application/x-gzip
Why didn't it change? obviously, gar.gz files are not passed to the php
interpretator, like html files.
How can I "hack" the local.conf file of the directory so that this file
won't be passed as x-gzip but as html?
