Helo

I get a "403 Forbidden Error" for my link to a .vcf file in my "assets/Uploads" folder.

Seems like SilverStripe doesn't allow .vcf files. Does anyone know how I can add the .vcf ending to the allowed extensions?

Thanks!

Hi repoman,

i've done that by adding this to my mysite/_config.php:

// Allow usage of .vcf files by adding 'vcf to the $allowed_extensions array
File::$allowed_extensions[] = 'vcf';

Also make sure to to add vcf to the .htaccess file in your assets directory.

Cheers

Hi Christian

Thanks!

I can't figure out how to add vcf to the .htaccess file in my assets directory. How did you do it?

I tried to add this to the .htaccess file in my "mysite" folder:

<Directory /html/www/cms/assets/>
AddType text/x-vcard .vcf
</Directory>

and created a .htaccess file in my assets directory and added this:

AddType text/x-vcard .vcf

Either way I failed.

Thanks! repoman

Hi,

i think there's no need to edit the .htaccess in the mysite directory.

I've copied and pasted my assets/.htaccess to here: [url]http://pastie.org/1843569[/url]
