#2061 closed Bug (duplicate)

can't upload some types of files

Reported by: Kristen Bishop Owned by:

I am unable to get several file types uploaded from the frontend using this editor. I work for a school and somehow got stuck being the webmaster even though I have no knowledge of php other than random guesses. The gentleman at my school district who installed joomla for me tried to fix the problem, but he up and quit without finishing my problem (which I submitted to him months ago). I have tried everything that I can think of and I am at my wit's end to get this fixed so I can have teachers help make and maintain their own portion of their website. The only error message I get when I try and upload a .doc document to the server is that the file type is invalid.

This is what the guy at the district said when he left concerning my problem. "I have found and changed all the appropriate files, though for some reason that has me a bit stumped it does not take effect correctly. The odd things about the whole situation is if I remove items from the allowed lists they no longer work as expected, but I if added new items to the same lists they do add functionality."

I have no idea if this makes a difference, but it is installed on a Mac OS X server and I generally speaking use firefox for my browser.

Let me know what other information you might need to help me out if possible.
