Unable to upload doc or PDF files - gokulakrishna9 - 11-09-2017

I have tried various combinations of MIME types with no success. 
I am able to upload images.
Codeigniter 3 on PHP 7.
Thanks for the help.

Changed this: $this->load->library('upload', $config);
to this:
$this->load->library('upload');
$this->upload->initialize($config);

And it worked.
