GUIDE: Skillsoft MIME Types for Windows Servers
Posted by Brian Kleeman on 11 November 2009 12:10 AM

Applies To:

Microsoft Windows Server 2003

Background:

For web content to be delivered correctly from a Windows 2003 server, MIME Types must be setup in IIS. Most MIME types are already in the default IIS setup, however some are not and must be manually added. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open the IIS Manager
  2. Right click the [servername] node and select "Properties"
  3. Select "HTTP Headers Tab" > "MIME Types..."
  4. Click "New"
  5. Enter and add the necessary Extensions and related MIME Types listed below
  6. Restart IIS when all the MIME Types have been entered
MIME Types:

Skillsoft maintains a complete list of required MIME Types here: Skillsoft Integration KB: Configure Windows 2003

Important Note: Skillsoft's documentation lists the MIME-Type for .xsl as 'text/xsl'. This value will cause problems with the course catalog interface of the Administrator Menu within Inquisiq R3. To avoid this, specify the MIME-Type for .xsl as 'text/xml'.
