[Fixed] 404 Not Found Error for .Woff, .otf font in ASP.NET MVC
In this blog post, I will show a simple fix for the error HTTP 404 Not Found for the font files e.g. woff, woff2, otf etc. used in ASP.NET or MVC or Azure.
I was creating a dynamic ad and in that ad I have to show custom font-family. I added the font but it wasn’t reflecting on Azure. It was working fine on local.
So after some research, I found, it’s due to every file that gets requested from the server must have valid MIME type in the request so if there is a problem with these MIME types you face such errors.
To fix this issue just open web.config file of your site and add the following content under configuration section.
<system.webServer> <staticContent> <remove fileExtension=".woff" /> <mimeMap fileExtension=".woff" mimeType="application/font-woff" /> <remove fileExtension=".woff2" /> <mimeMap fileExtension=".woff2" mimeType="application/font-woff2" /> <remove fileExtension=".otf" /> <mimeMap fileExtension=".otf" mimeType="application/x-font-otf" /> </staticContent> </system.webServer>
It will help.
