The phpFox script gives you full control over attachments. This tutorial will help you learn how to add, edit and manage attachments for your site.

Adding Attachment Types

  • Go to Attachment app in AdminCP > Apps >> Installed >> Attachment. Go to Add New Type Tab

  • You'll see a popup with boxes to fill in. We will use .zip as an example of our attachment. You will need to look up the various attachment Mime types in order to add whatever attachments you want to add. For zip, fill it in like this:
    1. Extension - for our example we put zip without a period in the front.
    2. MIME type - for our example it is application/zip.
    3. Image - No as this is not an image type of attachment.
    4. Active - Yes as we want to activate this.
    5. Submit when done.
