    Apache server - problems serving MS word doc's


    Hi all,

    I'm a bit of a newb still but getting there. I have had this server running for about 6 months now with no real problems, until i tried to serve word doc's from it.

    Results on the remote machine:

    MSIE: give page cannot be displayed

    If Word is launched, it returns this error: word cannot open the follow document.

    I have tried renaming, tried various different remote machines.

    Help please

    It would be very much appreciated (-:

    Hi

    I have found the problem (-:

    When i was sending the files over FTP i was sending them as ascii, sent them as binary and all is good.

    Jesus, funny how u miss the smallest things.

    Admin, please feel free to close this one off.

    Great site, btw - only stumbled across it when this problem arose - will be coming back to ya.
