Hi Tiemo,

The content-type is indeed your problem, as it should
be something along the lines of "application/gzip" -
but this is to be configured on the server side, in
Apache. So you should have a chat with the system
administrator to configure the right MIME-type for the
.gz extension.

When the content-type is "text/plain" there may be
conversions along the way. Which is why it's also
important in FTP to upoad/download files as binary
when it's not a text file.
