Racking my head over a missing Content-Type header

August 24, 2023 06:26PM

I have a location override that returns a json file and should set the content type to application/json. For some reason the content type is set to application/octet-stream, even though the file is read correctly. The config and mime.types file is below. Is there something obviously wrong here?


curl -v
* Trying
* Connected to ( port 7382 (#0)
> GET /status HTTP/1.1
> Host:
> User-Agent: curl/7.81.0
> Accept: */*
* Mark bundle as not supporting multiuse
