Can't upload a file.

  • Question
  • Updated 7 years ago
I uploaded a file a year or so ago and now want to upload a newer version of it, but the uploader freezes. I've tried to see if the old file still uploads and it doesn't anymore either. The file size is 76.7 mb. A similar(older) file which I'm trying to replace and can't upload anymore either can be found at:

Hi Zachariah,
It looks like you are trying to upload a .deb file format? I am unfamiliar with this file type but did look it up to learn a bit. Can you tell us what you are looking to do with this file type, it could be a restricted file type, but I can look into it.

Thanks,
Emmy

The .deb file format is a package installer for many types of linux distributions. It is very similar to downloading an installer for Windows from downloads.com. By clicking on one of these types of files in Ubuntu linux, a window pops up asking if you want to install the file. Upon clicking Ok. The installer will install the program and place an icon in the system menu which will start the program. The program I'm trying to uplaod here is a Super Mario Brothers style game. I have uploaded around 100 .deb packages over the past 2 years now without any problems. Most of them are Arcade games. Some are Role Playing Games, Word Games, Puzzles, System tools, Antivirus software ect.

Hello Zachariah,
I see, thanks for clarifying. This sounds to be like an executable file which is a restricted file type so unfortunately it won't be possible to upload it. If you were able to upload an executable file in the past that would have been a bug. I'm sorry that I don't have better news for you on that. If I am at all wrong on this being an executable file please let me know.

Kind Regards,
Emmy
