This is a strange bug. I have Elgg 1.8.3 running on a Ubuntu server. I
upload .docx and .xlsx files via the Elgg Files plugin. First thing that
threw me off was that the icons to the left of the files would show up as
Zip. When I go to Chrome on my Windows 7 machine, I can download and open
the file via the appropriate MS application. However, when I use Firefox on
the same WIndows machine to download the file, it reports it as a Zip
archive and proceeds to open it up from File Explorer as a Zip.
Based on the following web search, I made sure that the server side mime
types were correct on both the .htaccess and the /etc/mime.types, but to no
Is this a known issue? Am I missing something else in my configuration?
