Static .svg file is served as text/plain

Reported by Maxim Chernyak | November 25th, 2008 @ 09:49 PM | in 2.x

When accessing static .svg files which reside in public directory, the response is in text/plain. I assume this could be the case with other not-very-popular extensions, and probably due to recent revamping of server configs, rack, and autoload requires.

Also, Mime::Type.register does not solve this problem. Everything goes back to normal if I revert my project a few rails commits backward.

    • State changed from “new” to “wontfix”

    It shouldn't be to be of an issue since apache, ngnix, or mongrel should be doing the static file serving itself.

    If we want to fix in script/server, we'll have to patch rack upstream. See Rack::File.
