It is about how different browsers may interpret the file type of the file they are receiving.
You must set 'application/force-download' in the file types settings to allow this kind of file to pass.

Hi

I'm interested in this add-on. Does it work fine with the 'Files and Images Attachments' that I have installed. Also is there the ability to resize large size image uploads to a defined maximum size (as it is with Files and Images Attachments) to avoid huge photos taking up server space?

Thanks

Those are two standalone add-ons, with different architecture and approaches in uploading files. They still could work both when installed.

Yes, there is. But each user defines it on his/her own, there's an option when uploading a file. Some files may not need resizing, 'cause they are resized already or small.

You could check the uploading form straight on our forums.

I have the 'Upload a File' capability active on our forum, but when I try to upload a .pdf or .zip file I get the following error message:

Sorry! Your file has failed to upload. Either it is of a format not allowed to upload, is too large, such file already exists in the specified folder, or there was an internal server error. Please, try again after making corrections to the original file.

REF:#application/pdf#572156#1993_04_07_snippet.pdf#pdf#SCANFALSE


I have checked the configuration, and all looks correct...
What do you think is wrong?

Ass/set something like this to addon_storage_options.php / $anonUsersFiles or $regUsersFiles arrays:

'application/pdf'=>1536000,

Changing the .pdf to 'application/pdf'=>1536000, has worked!

With the .zip files it says REF:#application/x-zip-compressed#3794#leparklifeblattsygicroutes.zip#zip#SCANFALSE

I can see no option for x-zip???

Then add/set it.

'application/x-zip-compressed'=>1536000,

In other words, the first reference followed after REF between #...# in the error text, is in common cases the precise type you shall add.

Various browsers may set different types for the same extension file.

Any idea why I can't upload mp4 files to my MAMP server? This is the error message ...

Sorry! Your file has been failed to upload. Either it is not allowed to upload files with the following type or size, either such file already exists in the specified folder; either there was an internal server error. Please, try again.

REF:#video/mp4#8614250##mp4#SCANFALSE

I think this is server related. I have checked the file sizes and can upload zip files which are larger so there isn't an issue there.

Check addon_storage_options.php and make sure 'mp4' is added to the $fileTypeAssociations array, that way:

'mp4'=>array('video/mpeg', 'video/mp4'),

It seems the browser you're uploading from (BTW which one it is?) sends 'video/mp4' header for this type of files, which is not defined by default.

That did it!

Hi Paul - I am again having issues trying to upload pdf files...
I just get the message:

Sorry! Your file has failed to upload. Either it is of a format not allowed to upload, is too large, such file already exists in the specified folder, or there was an internal server error. Please, try again after making corrections to the original file.

No other text.

Everything looks to be as it should be with 'addon_storage_options.php'

Any thoughts?

Steve

Could you provide the "REF" line which should displayed below the error message? The similar to the one posted in the post #41 above.
