For display fonts in website, browser must receive font files with correct http headers.If the server does not set the required fonts path in headers
browser can report errors in console or it will fail to display fonts.

Your server is already configured, and you don’t need to change anything. If not, you need to check about mime-type headers.


Go to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf or open httpd.conf

To set right mime-types for font files, add this lines to config:

AddType application/x-font-ttf           ttc ttf
AddType application/x-font-otf           otf
AddType application/font-woff            woff
AddType application/font-woff2           woff2
AddType application/vnd.ms-fontobject    eot

If you can’t edit config, create .htaccess file in folder with your project and add lines there.

For CORS headers add:

<FilesMatch ".(eot|ttf|otf|woff|woff2)">
  Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"

By default nginx has no default mime types for fonts, and wrong mime type for .eot files. Go to folder with configs and find where mime types are defined. Usually, that’s in the mime.types file.Search .eot and string with it.Add strings below.

 application/x-font-ttf           ttc ttf;
 application/x-font-otf           otf;
 application/font-woff            woff;
 application/font-woff2           woff2;
 application/vnd.ms-fontobject    eot;

For CORS headers, add something like this to your vhost config

location ~* \.(eot|otf|ttf|woff|woff2)$ {
    add_header Access-Control-Allow-Origin *;
