Fixing “Cannot get media type from ’0′”

February 25th, 2008 — 9:12am

By the way, if you ever see lots and lots of lines in your Apache logs like this:

[warn] Cannot get media type from ’0′
[warn] Cannot get media type from ’0′
[warn] Cannot get media type from ’0′
[warn] Cannot get media type from ’0′
[warn] Cannot get media type from ’0′
[warn] Cannot get media type from ’0′

(specifically if you’ve upgrade from Apache 1.x to Apache 2.x) you need to add the following to your httpd.conf:

TypesConfig /etc/mime.types
DefaultType text/plain

For some reason, our Apache 1.x files didn’t have that in there and it’s apparently required by Apache 2.x for correct mime type handling.
