Re: [Vala] http server help

I'm an idiot!
The first code, with socket, I forget the new line to close the header, but
with the server libsoup I have forgotten the 200 OK response.

Thanks for the reply.

I tried with http 1.1 does not work.
This is only a test, I will not specify the length of the data because they
do not always know.

$file = 'audio.mp3';
if (file_exists($file)) {
    header('Content-Type: audio/mpeg');

This example works in php. I would write it in vala.

Php and apache (or any other server) do really much more under the hood.
If you want the same in vala, you want at least to study the HTTP specs or
use some helper library like libsoup or anything else. Also, I didn't say
using HTTP 1.1 would have fixed the issue.
In general you can know the file size, it's not a stream. If you don't
know, then you want chunked encoding. This isn't something vala will do for
you, you have to implement the http rfc.
