Subject [users@httpd] Powerpoint slideshows are gibberish
Date Tue, 25 Mar 2008 20:42:37 GMT
I just brought up an Apache2 webserver on Fedora Core 6.  Copied the content
from my old Apache 1.3 server and thought it was working fine.  Then someone
clicked on a PowerPoint slideshow file (.pps) and received a screen full of
gibberish instead of the option to open the file in PowerPoint.  Can anyone
tell me why and how to fix it?  I've verified the file--it's fine.  If I
point the browser to a .ppt file, it prompts for an application or to save.
But not the .pps.  I have gone through the conf file but don't see anything
closely related.  Have made only minor changes to default config file.
Thanks in advance for your help.
