WordPress – Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons.

Now that my file upload size has been fixed, I want to upload a .dmg (Mac universal Binary) file for people to download.

WP tells me ‘Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons’.

Frankly I can’t be Rsed to install a plugin just to enable .dmg files, so I’ve zipped my file and uploaded it with no problems.

Some documentation here for others searching for the answer – if you find a convenient answer (preferably with a GUI) then please leave a comment!
