How to add mime type?

Somehow you will get 403 error message on your browser, because the extention of file that we want to open is unregistered on the server.

HTTP Error 404.3 – Not Found
The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the extension configuration. If the page is a script, add a handler. If the file should be downloaded, add a MIME map.


For the example, the extention file is .avs so you can add mime type .avs to make it work on your browser, by following these steps:
- Login to Plesk
- Click your website
- Click Web Server Settings
- On MIME types field, you can add the mime type there (but you need to find the conmbination of the mime type first i.e: *.avs the combination is video/avs-video)

- Click OK
