Netscape cannot load local PHP pages

Threaded View
Hello, I hope someone out there can help me on this: I am developing a
php application on a windows xp machine running IIS and I cannot load
the famous test.php page or any others with a php extension in my
Netscape 7.1 browser (I also tried version 4.6).  I am always prompted
with: you are trying to open an application of type
"application/octet-stream " and what I would like to do with the file,
when in reality my browser should be processing it.  It works great in
IE, and php pages on the web work fine in Netscape.  So I know it is
something local, but I just can't figure it out!  Is there a
particular setup of php files with Netscape, something mime-type
related?  Does anyone have any advice?  Thanks!

In your mime.types file:

type=magnus-internal/cgi       exts=php,cgi

In your obj.conf:

NameTrans from="/php" fn="pfx2dir" dir="/path/to/php/dir" name="cgi"

And if you want to use it as an index:

PathCheck fn="find-index" index-names="index.php"

Thanks for the response.  I am running IIS 5.0 and I do not have these
files available to me.  I guess they are for Netscape web servers?  Do
you have any further suggestions? :)  Thanks,
