Opening a File With an Unknown Extension (.eml, .msg) in WCC 10g and Apache Opens File in Browser Instead of Prompting User to Download (Doc ID 1574728.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 03, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 10.0 to [Release 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using WebCenter Content 10g (formerly UCM) and Apache web server, when opening the weblayout copy of a file with an extension which isn't known to the system, the browser opens the file as plain text, instead of prompting to download the file, or open in another application.

How can this be resolved?
