Upload file problems

Hello all,

I couldn't find any posts related to this (to my knowledge) so here it goes:

I'm getting an mconvert() error/warning of invalid type when uploading any type of file to the system. Even though it shows the error, the file is uploaded correctly.

Here's the error message when uploading the CSS file on step 5 of journal config:
Code: Select all
Warning: mime_magic: invalid type 0 in mconvert(). in /var/www/seer/0709/lab20/ojs2/classes/core/String.inc.php on line 216

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /var/www/seer/0709/lab20/ojs2/classes/core/String.inc.php:216) in /var/www/seer/0709/lab20/ojs2/classes/template/TemplateManager.inc.php on line 187

Any related problems? How to fix this? Setting the error_reporting will only hide the issue...

Hi Ramón,

I suspect your magic.mime file is incompatible with the mime_magic library built into PHP. I'd suggest getting a version that's compatible and making sure PHP's mime_content_type function is configured to find it in the right location. Some PHP packages ship with a version of magic.mime.
