Wiki – Upload .doc or .xls errors

Error:

The file is corrupt or has an incorrect extension. Please check the file and upload again.

Solution:

$wgVerifyMimeType = false;

Other checks are to make sure the following are set:

$wgEnableUploads = true;

$wgFileExtensions = array( ‘doc’, ‘xls’, ‘png’, ‘gif’, ‘jpg’, ‘jpeg’, ‘ogg’, ‘zip’);
in LocalSettings.php which should be in your root wiki directory (not config).
