I have a file upload in php. When uploading zip or rar format it does not support. For example

if(in_array($_FILES['attachment']['type'][$key],$mime)) { // upload process } else { // failed message }

here $mime types are provide in array format.

This string: in_array($_FILES['attachment']['type'][$key],$mime) always returns false when executing the script. Other browsers are return true ie 1.

please check it once.

I am using latest firefox version 27.0.1 when I am uploading a zip file format, firefox doesn’t recognized it is a zip format. I am also write a page to check mime type of the file the output is Browser reports type of file3.zip as: text/html.

And chrome also zip mime type recognized as “application/octet-stream” where as in case of firefox zip mime type recognized as text/html not zip mime type. That is the my problem. Can anybody is there to answer?

How is this file type set in the registry (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.zip) and in the MIME database key (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type)?
