Uploading files

Post by rsaucier »

I can upload PDF, JPG, ZIP but cannot seem to upload DOC, DOCX, or XLS. All file extensions are in the whitelist (Admin Area > Main > Configuration > Advanced > file upload whitelist).

Ideas? Solutions?

Issue resolved:
Added the following to 'function mimetype($ext)' in /lib/mimetype.php:

Code: Select all

		case "doc" : case "dot" :
			return 'application/msword';
		case "docx" :
			return 'application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document';
		case "xls";
			return 'application/vnd.ms-excel';
		case "xlsx";
			return 'application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet';
		case "ppt";
			return 'application/vnd.ms-powerpoint';
		case "pptx";
			return 'application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.presentation';
