    I am trying the easy File uploader with PHP 5.6.14

    When I try to upload I get this error:

    ERROR: The uploaded file type is not permitted.

    MIME detected by PHP:

    MIME detected by Browser: application/zip

    So it seems that my browser is able to detect it but PHP is not.

    I have also confirmed that php_fileinfo.dll is present in the php/ext folder.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Sorry for the trouble, have a nice day
