How to post OTA files on your website!
I see a lot of people lately that have been wanting to create their own website to post 3rd party software for others to download. I figured I would post this information because I did not see it anywhere else.
I hope this helps.
When posting files on your website for OTA downloads, you will need to either modify the .htaccess file (for Linux servers) or MIME Types (for Windows servers.)
Linux & modifying the .htaccess file:
Place the following information into a notepad file named ".htaccess"
AddType text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor jad
AddType application/java-archive jar
AddType application/vnd.rim.cod cod
Windows & adding MIME Types:
Add the following information to the MIME Types on your host site
MIME type: text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor
MIME type: application/vnd.rim.cod
If anyone has anything to add to this or any corrections, please let me know.

Since we're on the topic... Where are some sites that have files to download??
(I'm American, but live and work in Cambodia, and the apps world is not available for my country, AND I upgraded my 8520 myself to the newest firmware, and all my old apps didn't make it through the upgrade...)
Specifically, I had some sort of notepad app, another app that let me view documents such as word and excel docs, a tasks app, and some sort of app that let me store passwords in it... I also lost apps like facebook, etc, but those were easy to find.
Also, is there a way to install these programs from the firmware file I upgraded to?? I have a feeling it gave me options to check them when I did it, but I just assumed I could easily find them all again and download them with out any problems..
Thanks for any help you may be able to offer me...
