Just go into your LocalSettings.php file and add these lines (or change their values if the variables are already mentioned in this file):
$wgCheckFileExtensions = false;
$wgVerifyMimeType = false;
$wgFileExtensions = array( 'png', 'gif', 'jpg', 'jpeg' );
Note: you'll need only these three variables to unrestrict file types upload process...but if you want to control some file types extensions you could use the following variables:
$wgStrictFileExtensions = false;
$wgFileBlacklist = array();
This approach could be useful if your MediaWiki installation is only for your own personal use and you are sick and tired of it telling you couldn’t [gs upload] this and that file type.
Note that if a file extension is listed in the [gs variable] $wgFileBlacklist then it doesn’t matter how you change the other variables, it will be blocked!
