Certain Files can not be Uploaded through DotNetNuke
You may receive error messages when uploading certain file types.
Error processing file: ________ is a restricted file type. Valid file types include

This is by design.  DotNetNuke allows the Host user to specify what files can and can not be uploaded.

To solve this issue, you need to add the file's extension to the approved file extension list.
  1. Log into your website as Host.
  2. Go to Host > Host Settings.
  3. Under the Other Settings tab, scroll down to allowable file extensions.
  4. This is a comma separated list of approved file extensions.  Add the new extension to the list. NOTE:  Do not include spaces between the file extensions.
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Update Settings.
