Supporting HTML5 manifest files on IIS 7 using Web.config
Having recently picked up an iPod Touch, to replace my Classic, I've become very interested in HTML5's ability to navigate content offline.
In my environment I decided to create a separate directory for my manifest files. I'm also running IIS 7, on Server 2008 R2, so .manifest files are already defined for WPF.
So that that isn't an issue, I created a Web.config file in the manifest directory with the below contents. This effectively removes the already-defined MIME type, and replaces it with the one needed for the HTML5 functionality.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <configuration> <system.webServer> <staticContent> <remove fileExtension=".manifest" /> <mimeMap fileExtension=".manifest" mimeType="text/cache-manifest" /> </staticContent> </system.webServer> </configuration>
Any number of online sites can then be used to confirm that the file is passed with the correct type.
