File Gallery hanging on docx uploads

posts: 22

Hi there,

I've been having trouble uploading the newer Word formats to my file galleries. I'm able to upload doc, ppt, xls files fine, but when trying to upload docx, pptx, xlsx the uploader just hangs and nothing is uploaded.

Any ideas? If you need any extra information let me know.

Bump.

An alternative question to this is, where can I find the allowed file types to upload to the file galleries?

I don't find them all listed anywhere. There are some mentioned as "New file types recognized by tiki" on http://doc.tiki.org/File+Gallery

Looking in tiki-upload_file.php, it appears to get them from: lib/mime/mimetypes.php

Okay, I've found a fix to my problem...

I've turned off the "Automatic indexing of file content" in the File Gallery options, and I can now upload docx, xlsx, and pptx files.

I've seen a issue with this before but it was doing the opposite and blocking doc, xls, ppt files but allowing the newer *x files...

How detrimental will keeping this option off be for my site or is there a fix?

As an aside that option has the following "Missing Handlers":
application/msword
application/octet-stream
application/pdf
image/jpeg
text/csv
video/mp4
video/x-flv
video/x-msvideo
