    Vcard in xhtml file

    I have make a contact list as a web server for mobile to browse it. I made some link to the vcf files that I got. The web page works fine by computer IE. But failed to open as a vcf file in mobile N73, instead it open as a text file.
    Could anyone tell me how I can configure your web server to provide correct mime type for those files so that mobile could recognize it.

    I put all the vcf file in another folder, and I use this code to link to them
    <li><a href="vcard/jaako_hamle.vcf">Jaakko Halme</a></li>

    The mime type define of mine is as below:
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/x-vcard; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <meta http-equiv="Cache-control" content="max-age=200" />
    It does not work for mobiles.
    Should I make some file to define the type in the folder where I put the vcf files. Or any other idea? I have been strugling with this problem for very long.

    Re: Vcard in xhtml file

    Are you a bot?

    You will probably need to configure your mime types.
    You currently seem to be trying to pass the .vcf as html?
    I am sure it won't have those html tags contained in it.

    You can do it in .htaccess or httpd.conf if you are using Apache.
    AddType text/x-vcard .vcf
