Support » Requests and Feedback » Change your mime-type of your servers ?

  • Greetings,

    I’m a web hoster in shared hosting and i have a request which will help my users and yours in same time.

    The mime type of your file :
    http://fr.wordpress.org/wordpress-3.5-fr_FR.zip
    isn’t correct because it’s return the mime type : [application/octet-stream]

    curl -I http://fr.wordpress.org/wordpress-3.5-fr_FR.zip 2>/dev/null | grep 'Content-Type'
    Content-Type: application/octet-stream

    And in “octet-stream” it’s not possible to cache it with a proxy like squid example.

    I host several WordPress on the same IP adress in shared hosting and each website try to download each time your file. So my request will help your servers against a very load of download and increase the security update for my customers and yours.

    You didn’t make this error for other files like example : http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/download/max-magazine.1.0.3.zip
    where the mime type is : [application/zip]

    curl -I http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/download/max-magazine.1.0.3.zip 2>/dev/null | grep 'Content-Type'
    Content-Type: application/zip

    Could you solve this problem and change [application/octet-stream] to [application/zip] please ?

    This will help everybody in our downloads 🙂

    Thanks so much,
    Élodie BOSSIER
