News 1.44 - Trouble with file attachments
Having some intermitent trouble with file attachments to articles on News 1.44.
Sometimes they attach to an article, sometimes they fail.
Using the insanity approach - trying the same attachment over and over expecting success - sometimes does work, but alas not today.
Xoops 184.108.40.206 (an upgrade to 2.0.16 is on the to do list, just not this week....)
Not a file size issue, have max file size set to 5Mb (5048576)
Not a server disk allocation issue (170MB available)
Error message on failure to attach is:
Error while uploading the file
Errors Returned While Uploading
Unknown filetype rejected
MIME type not allowed: application/pdf
Thanks for your submission.
(At least we're polite...)
Attachment is just a plain ol' 81K PDF and we've been able to attach PDFs to other News articles.
Any ideas how to check/adjust New's allowed file types?
