IIS6 and .svg files
I'm trying to get my website providers (IIS6) to support the .svg MIME, and I ended up with the following links:
W3C SVG Server Settings
IIS 6.0 does not serve unknown MIME types
This seems to be a general link to adding new MIME types, and it says:
1.Open the IIS Microsoft Management Console (MMC), right-click the local computer name, and then click Properties.
2.Click MIME Types.
4.In the Extension box, type the file name extension that you want (for example, .pdb).
5.In the MIME Type box, type application/octet-stream.
6.Apply the new settings. Note that you must restart the World Wide Web Publishing Service or wait for the worker process to recycle for the changes to take effect. In this example, IIS now serves files with the .pdb extension.
My web guys said .svg wasn't a known type, so they registered it as type application/unknown.
Can someone please confirm that specifically in IIS6, the following is the MIME that must be added for .svg?
