Try adding this to your ./application/config/mimes.php

PHP Code:
'doc'    => array('application/msword''application/vnd.ms-office''application/octet-stream'),
'docx'    => array('application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document''application/zip''application/msword''application/x-zip''application/octet-stream'), 

Just add this to the end of them both.

PHP Code:
'application/octet-stream'

Hi ,

I have modified mimes.php file but still showing type errors.

Thanks.

Did you check your error log file, it may put the error reason in there.

Some browsers see the mime types different then they are.

Have you set the allowed file type in the configuration ?

Have a look there Upload Preferences


RE: .doc and .docx file upload - rupamhazra - 11-07-2016

Yes, Here is my controller code  $config['allowed_types']        = 'gif|jpg|png|doc|pdf|docx';

@rupamhazra
have you an example doc/docx file and the controller code?
