Comment (by mssd19):


 So what is happening with this ?
 Why it is that a site administrator cannot upload a file ? This makes no
 sense to me.

 my wp-config.php file contains


 and my wp-content/themes/Avada/functions.php fiel contains
 function my_custom_upload_mime_types( $mimes ) {
 $mimes['py'] = 'text/x-python';
 $mimes['exe'] = 'application/x-msdos-program';
 $mimes['sh'] = 'text/x-sh';
 $mimes['tgz'] = 'application/x-tar';
 $mimes['msi'] = 'application/x-msi';
 $mimes['wps'] = 'application/x-executable';
 // Return the array back to the function with our added MIME type.
 return $mimes;
 add_filter( 'upload_mimes', 'my_custom_upload_mime_types' );

 the .wps extension (i.e WordPress Sucks) was added as it is the only way I
 found to upload linux binaries, by adding the .wps extension ...
