Description: MSIE tries to download file when you hit domain alias

Apparently my browser was on crack. I've been rebooting several times to make sure it 
wasn't browser related, and after running it through loadrunner, it worked fine. Chalk 
it up to a bad proxy or something.. ..

I'm using MSIE 5.5. Opera 5.11 works fine with the document, as does lynx. It appears 
that the way my site is set up, hitting will not suffice. Is 
there a workaround? perhaps a redirect like the below:

DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.shtml   


<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=";>

Would work. I just don't like kludges such as these. If only IE would listen to the 
mimetype. But still, why is this happening only on my system? I'm going to run a 
recording in loadrunner to see if it can pull across the headers..

Works fine from here with both NS 4.77 and IE 5.00.2314.1003
Which version of IE are you using? However, this can't be no problem with PHP I think.

When I hit my site normally:, all is ok, and it brings up my 
first page. When I hit my site with its "www." alias (from DNS level) IE tries to 
download the file. I'm not certain why it would do this, because most other browsers 
handle this correctly. My mime.types file:

text/html                       html htm php

My httpd.conf:

DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.shtml   
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

My PHP.ini:

default_mimetype = "text/html"

Like I said, if you point at a specific directory under either DNS registry, no 
worries. If you point to the root on the www. spec, it doesn't seem to send the right 
mimetype. I figure if it's working everywhere but that one place it's probably config. 
I just want to eliminate suspects. Thanks.
