    Some File Extensions return 404

    While I had a good start with umbraco i know it the wall.

    I have .jpeg,.gif,.pdf files uploaded via the media section in umbraco. Files with those extensions are served correctoy.
    Unfurtunetly other file extensions like .kml or .zip give me a 404.

    These 404 files are on the server (checked on filesystem) and are believed to have the right access rights.
    If one of those errornous files is renamed from .kml to .jpg its instantly availabel to download.

    What could cause such behaviour ?
    Is there a list of filestypes which i might need to extend?
    Could that be an issue with redirection/ url rewritting?

    Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    You probably need to add the mime-types to IIS ->

    Is it just me who finds it funny that the only answer to this question contains a link which goes to a 404 page? 😂
