View Full Version : PDF/X-PDF "Bug" in 1.8.9 and below

07-07-2006, 01:08 AM

There is some bug with different Content-Types in the server response for PDF files.

One of our servers is responding with "Content-type: application/x-pdf". (See below).
The PhpDig search allows only application/pdf. And only if this header is found the PDF gets parsed.

The x-pdf is nothing different and just some IE fix... try google :)

Maybe anyone should rewrite the line 510 (v1.8.8) of the robot_functions.php:

else if ($regs[2] == 'pdf' && PHPDIG_INDEX_PDF == true) {

else if (($regs[2] == 'pdf' || $regs[2] == 'x-pdf') && PHPDIG_INDEX_PDF == true) {

And everything will work fine for both response types of the server :)

Here is the sample response of our Apache server:

Status Code: 200
Date: Fri, 07 Jul 2006 08:22:09 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.46 (Red Hat)
