Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM HTTP Server users attempting to unset   *
    *                  Content-Type                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Content-Type is not properly unset      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Apply this fix if using mod_headers module  *
    ****************************************************************
    The Content-Type was using a default rather than getting unset
    when 'Header unset Content-Type' is set.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Content-Type is now properly unset when 'Header unset
    Content-Type' is used.
    
    This fix is targeted for IBM HTTP Server fix packs:
    - 8.0.0.15
    - 8.5.5.14
    - 9.0.0.8
