We have the https://www.wordfence.com/ plugin installed, but I don’t see any setting in there to restrict file types.
I just contacted wpEngine support and they implemented the ALLOW_UNFILTERED_UPLOAD suggestion. However, there’s no change. Trying to upload a file produces a “Sorry, this file extension is not permitted for security reasons.” error.
But in doing this with wpEngine, they confirmed that the largest file they allow to pass through the hosting is 256mb. We would want video files up to 2500mb!
So I don’t think the S3Sync is going to work as a method for our archivists to upload video using gravity forms and S3sync.
Can we therefore cancel our subscription? Sorry.
