Apache isn't serving HTML properly to NS clients

I've got a vanilla Apache install running out of the box from a fresh RH 5.1 install.  I've put up a website and it serves everything up great for all my IE users.  Problem is, when a user views the pages from Netscape, it just displays the raw HTML on the page rather than the rendered page.  What did I do wrong?  What can I fix?

Thanks!

Hi,

This is probably not an apache problem, but a problem with your HTML.
Try a telnet to the machine at port 80 (telnet localhost 80), and type:

GET /

Followed by 2 returns. This should display your index.html. The first part of this reply should contain a 'content-type: text/html' line. If it does, then your apache config is OK.
If not, check why apache doesn't recognise your files as HTML files. Maybe this is due to incorrect filenames? If the content-type header is wrong, you may want to take a look at mime.types, it's located in the apache conf directory.

Alex.

Pretty close.  I found the problem.  It was not processing .htm files properly due to the mimes.conf file not listing them.  This is what happens when you move over from IIS. =)

thanks!  you would have pointed me into the right file so the points are yours!
