I want to upload xls and doc files in to my wiki, but they are not listed as filetype. How can I add them to the list of allowed filetype.

As I know it is possible, if you can edit the localsettings.php. Can I get the right to edit that file somehow by myself? Sundog (talk) 07:43, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

wgFileExtensions in LocalSettings.php controls what file types can be uploaded. Editing LocalSettings.php requires command line access to the server, which only staff has. If you know what you want to change, you can ask, and they might implement it. --Saftzie (talk) 08:46, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
