#14659 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Incorrect mime type served for some uploaded files

Reported by: recoilfx's profile recoilfx Owned by: markjaquith's profile markjaquith

Severity: normal Version: 3.0.1

I used "upload_mimes" filter so that I can add additional allowed upload files types, however, there is a problem when serving these files.

It seems that ms-files.php does a short init, which skips the plugin files that registers the additional mime definitions.

So if I am trying to serve a Mathematica .nb file(which has the mime type application/mathematica, but it really is a text file), the file will be either served as a mime type of text (if mime_content_type exists) or image instead of the proper 'application/mathematica'.

Since shortinit was new to 3.0 I assume that this is a multisite related issue.

The SHORTINIT and it's limitations are intentional.

This should probably be documented as a good use case for sunrise.php.

ms-files is gone / going-away by default in 3.5, but .webm files should be in the allowed mime types list. .ogv is in there, webm should be too
