"upload xls or xlsx files with codeigniter, mime-type error" Answer’s


I'm getting this error also.

CI is reporting a file type of 'application/zip' which makes sense as the xlsx format is a compressed format (rename it to zip and you can open the contents).

I have added/replaced the following line to the mime types file (application/config/mimes.php):

'xlsx' => array('application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet','application/zip'),

and that works (for this browser at least!)
