    I am unable to upload or attach documents such as word or excel to a page.

    I get the following error: File type does not meet security guidelines. Try another.

    My upload file has the necessary permissions (777), and the admin option is pointing to the right directory.

    Please help.

    Word Press filters out unacceptable MIME types:

    By default, xls and doc files are not permitted. You can change that setting by adding them to the list of acceptable MIME types in wp-includes/functions.php
