Hi guys, i have added a file upload option to a product in opencart 1.5.5.1 but everytime i add a file for upload, it says "Invalid FIle Type" i cant find anywhere in the admin area to name mime types.

just testing myself and get same error will see what is causing it.

Think a found it.

file extensiosn in admin looks like this:
.jpg,.gif,.xls, etc

if you look close to original installed extensions you will see that some , are set as .

i deleted all . amd made sute extensions are delimited wih,
so it looks like jpg,gif,xls, and now upload is accepted

Hi Vicor, just had a go with this and found that it still doesnt work.

I have set the file types as :

"jpg,gif,png,tiff,bmp"

And left the MIME Types blank.

If you look at this page : http://embroiderit.co.uk/index.php?rout ... arch=ba650 and try to upload, you will see :)

Many thanks!

did test it on 1.5.4.1 and managed to get it working will install 1.5.5.1 and do a test there as well to see if it works there.

Just installed a version of 1.5.5.1 same as you are using.
if you upgraded then the problem is probaly in the upgrade since file extensions are set different in 1.5.5.1.

sent you a pm with login to backend so you can check

etc

In case anyone is still looking for a solution to this issue i have stumbled accross this. You need to not only add the file extension to the upload option but you must also add it in the system > settings > your store > server. If you are trying to upload files with capitalized extensions you must add the capitalized version of it in the allowed file extensions box. Hope this helps someone.

Hello,

I have a problem for download a file pdf. In system > server i added :

zip
pdf
rar

And in Mime :

So when i want to add a file pdf in catalog > downloads, it's not work. But for zip it works good.

Somebody do you know why ?
I use opencart 1.5.5.1.

Thanks
