I have a plain/text file


I want to display its contents on web browser, so I use

mimetype.assign = ("" => "text/plain",
                   "text" => "text/plain",
                   ".jnlp" => "application/x-java-jnlp-file")

when I enter in my browser, the text is displayed in my browser.

The problem is when I enter **** in my browser, it displays its content in browser, but here I want to run this file in browser. Now it displays every file in the browser.

I want that the browser should run index.jnlp. instead of displaying its contents. I cannot change getNodeId to getNodeId.text.

How can I tell in lighttpd.conf to download a files or to display its content in browser?
