HTML files in Apache still displaying as raw text even with DefaultType, ForceType etc.

There was only one solution here and it was the following:

edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Comment the lines for the Mime Magic Module:


#   MIMEMagicFile /usr/share/magic.mime
#    MIMEMagicFile conf/magic

  *Don't forget to restart Apache and clear your browser cache twice

I was using DefaultType and ForceType and the weird thing is for MOST files it was fine, but a few randomly did not like this becuase it appears Mime Magic was determing and rewriting the Mime Type and basically overruling the .htaccess I had (yes I had AllowOverride in the VHOST conf too).
 

I hope this helps out someone else as it took me ages to sort out.
