QuickBooks Files Allowed

QuickBooks Files Allowed

Postby commonangle on 22 Aug 2013, 20:09

I have customized Allowed File Types for a client who also wants to be able to share QuickBooks (.QBM) files.

For both Download and Upload I have added the following line:
Code: Select all
{qbm=application/octet-stream}

They are able to upload, but get an invalid MIME type error when they attempt to download. Any reason why upload would work but not download?

Hi, hmmm, really no idea, check if it is really added ot allowed types, not to not allowed, check if the mime is right (I think it should be OK: application/octet-stream ) Can you paste a link to some qbm file, so I can test it.

Yes, I'm sure that it is in Allowed, and not Not Allowed.

The odd thing is that uploading works fine, it's only the download that generates the error.

I'll put a test file together and email you access info.

Hi,

- add to parameter: Allowed File Types (Download) in Global Configuration: {qbm=application/octet-stream}
- change your files from YourFile.QBM to YourFile.qbm - now your download will work (testing on on my test server and works Ok)

Or the second way is to add: {QBM=application/octet-stream} to the parameter.
