Description

Old (<2006) versions of Microsoft Office files are served with the correct mime type.
New (>2006) versions of these files are not.

The file /etc/nginx/mime-types contains the following lines:

application/vnd.ms-excel xls;
application/vnd.ms-powerpoint ppt;
application/msword doc;

These should be changed to:

application/vnd.ms-excel xls xlsx;
application/vnd.ms-powerpoint ppt pptx;
application/msword doc docx;

I'm using 1.1.19 (as packaged with ubuntu 12.10), but the same problem appears also in SVN trunk:

comment:1 by Christian Bönning, 8 years ago

There appear to be additional mime-types for Microsoft Office documents. I've opened a Pull Request on HTML5 Boilerplates version of "mime.types" where all those should be handled.

https://github.com/hexa2k9/server-configs/commit/9f1df6ac18e713b95fa3138f1ca9d1a1824c16a4.patch

I've updated that file again after Valentins comment on GitHub (thanks for the hint).
