Cannot upload ePub on issues

  • Gogs Version:
  • System: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
  • Database: MariaDB 10.1.41
  • On my system, when uploading a *.epub file, the upload is accepted but Gogs then a gray X on top of the uploaded file. Hovering over the image says “File type is not allowed”.
  • The same file can be uploaded on a issue.

Originally the upload was forbidden but I modified ALLOWED_TYPES in /etc/gogs/conf/app.ini to image/jpeg|image/png|application/pdf|application/epub+zip then restarted all 3 services (gogs-web-1.service, gogs-web.service, gogs.service). This is the same change I had done previously to support PDF uploads, which worked.

At that point upload appeared to succeed but this error appears. I even rebooted just to be sure I was not missing something, to no avail.

If I click save, the file is just ignored.
