Is there a length limitation on file extensions?

March 07, 2016 05:04PM
I am using Nginx to serve a website that hosts a .Net application. The file a user needs to download and that triggers installation is a *.application file, and an MS Internet Information Server associates that with the mime type application/x-ms-application. However that file never gets any Content-Type header. I edited the mime.types configuration file to include that, but Nginx ignores that. When I rename the file to .app, and use a mime type definition for that file it works. I also tried various other file extensions of varying length, and it looks like there is a limit of 10 characters in a file type extenion of Nginx, and if that is exceeded there will be no Content-Type header.
Is my assumption correct? Where is this in the source files? (I know how to compile Nginx). Or any other idea what causes my problem?
Thanks, Joachim
