I have site for the company I am involved in, for a few years. I have not made ny changes to it at least for a year. Last time I connected to this site was about 2 weeks ago to show it to a potential customer.

Site is www.allscape-landscaping.com

Today, I tried to connect to it with FireFox, but I get a message "You have chosen to open file which is text/x-server-parsed-html........."

I am totally at a loss since no change was made to the site; however, something happened! What, How & Where??????????

Any words of wisdom, pointers or suggestions?

Please note that I can connect to it usinf filezilla.

Changes must have been made to the server. Odd though, http://www.allscape-landscaping.com/index.html works. Do you have some other file there that the server may choose the serve as dafault index? index.shtml doesn't exist. 'text/x-server-parsed-html' is an old mime type for SSI docs.

I think that something has happened in the meanwhile. But what? Nobody except me has access to it. I do not have any file that can be construed as a default index, except index.html in the root directory.

Is it your own server?

Did you notice that the mysterious file with the text/x-server-parsed-html content-type is identical with your index.html?

Site is hosted by cphosting.

At a cursory look the mysterious file seems to be exactly the same (code wise) but the appearance is completely different, due to lack of style sheets & SSI`include function.

So how do you know nothing has changed on the server?

It's byte by byte the same document. So question is what's happening.

Just noticed this, when looked at the "downloads" screen of Firefox:

A different file, each with a different name, was created every time I tried. However, the file extension is .part every time. Such as:

Etd7kakN.part

I do not know what that means.

I only know .part in this context http://filext.com/file-extension/PART . If FF does something like that I haven't noticed it. Strange.

Do you have other directories with index files there? Could you check if the same thing happens when you try to access them with a browser?

Yes. Same thing happens in every sub-directory.

Still, thanks for trying to help. blink.gif blink.gif

Yeah, if you haven't done anything funky, it must be them.
