When I try to upload a PDF file, I get an error saying the filetype is not a valid one. Zip files upload without a problem. Is there any way I can set which filetypes to accept?

That's set on line 56 in modules/cms/widgets/AssetList.php It can be overridden.

* @var array A list of default allowed file types.
* This parameter can be overridden with the cms.allowedAssetTypes configuration option.

Nevermind. It does upload some pdf files, however for other's it says the file is not valid. Might be something related to the file's header.

Add to the bottom of app/config/cms.php

     /*
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | Specifies the allowed file types.
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |
    |
    */
   'allowedAssetTypes' => ['jpg','jpeg','bmp','png','gif','css','js','woff','svg','ttf','eot','json','md','less','sass','scss','pdf'],

I tried several things, but the problem is still not solved.

I added said configuration options and it allows me to upload PDF files, however, certain files it accepts while it doesn't accept others. Seems like something is going wrong with the isValid() function (Symfony) for asset uploads. As far as I know October only checks the file extension for validity, but not the mime/file-header types.

It does only check the extension.

Is the error not allow or not a valid file?

            if (!in_array($ext, $allowedAssetTypes))
                throw new ApplicationException(Lang::get('cms::lang.asset.type_not_allowed', ['allowed_types'=>implode(', ', $allowedAssetTypes)]));

            if (!$uploadedFile->isValid())
                throw new ApplicationException(Lang::get('cms::lang.asset.file_not_valid'));

It doesn't just check the extension, apparently it directs the file to a Symfony function and check for the mimetype/headers as well. It keeps returning a "not a valid file" error. I can upload some PDFs, while others generate an error.

@Demetrius I think the problem is on the saved version of your PDF. If your are saved from Illustrator, try to use some old version and uncheck the option "editable by Illustrator" (or something like that).

I don't think it is, really. Since last time I have also had problems uploading several jpeg and zip files, which are marked as invalid files. I tried several ways of archiving and saving, but nothing seems to work for it.

Can you try on other server? or maybe using Vagrant to install a virtual server.

hi,

I know this thread is a year old but I have a problem with setting allowedAssetTypes. i've copied the allowed types but still if i try to upload something i have to set file types to everything and then i get a red box with following error: You can't upload files of this type.

is this changed in the latest version?

update: found it myself i had to add fileTypes in the fields.yaml

If someone finds this topic wondering about file types for MediaManager, it's kind of hidden in the docs, but to allow more filetypes you have to overwrite default settings (defined in October\Rain\Filesystem\Definitions) in cms.php config. Paste and customize array like this at the bottom of the config:

 'fileDefinitions' => [
        'defaultExtensions' => [
            'jpg',
            'jpeg',
            'bmp',
            'png',
            'gif',
            'svg',
            'js',
            'map',
            'ico',
            'css',
            'less',
            'scss',
            'pdf',
            'swf',
            'txt',
            'xml',
            'xls',
            'eot',
            'woff',
            'woff2',
            'ttf',
            'flv',
            'wmv',
            'mp3',
            'ogg',
            'wav',
            'avi',
            'mov',
            'mp4',
            'mpeg',
            'webm',
            'mkv',
            'rar',
            'zip'
        ]
    ]
