Email attachment download "Word found unreadable content in 8qqrwPwAl3HRa01d.docx"
All Microsoft Office XML versions (docx, pptx, xlsx, etc) when downloaded show an error " Word found unreadable content in 8qqrwPwAl3HRa01d.docx. Do you want to recover the contents of this document? If you trust the source of this document, click Yes. ".
Is this a known issue?
Any office file with the x extension is downloading corrupted. Has anyone had this issue with CentOS 7?

Please share the original file with the same extension we will test if there is any issue from our side.
@Sanjeev Hi, which file are you referring to? If you are asking for one of the corrupt files any file saved as docx (Word), xlsx (Excel), pptx (Powerpoint) returns corrupt. When you create a simple file with a sentence in it, save, upload, download it is still readable. However, you get this error window when opening. .
Forgive me if I am finding the version in the wrong file (CHANGELOG-1.0.md), but the version is * 1.0.12 (2020-07-27).
- File uploads as an attachment with no issue.
- When I download the file after uploading it to the server via FTP (file with the new name) no issue.
- When trying to download the file on the ticket page the file is corrupt.
- I tried editing the page HTML to just download the file and not opening a new tab, still corrupt.
Not sure if the issue is with the route URL link for the download or server permissions. I tried this on a CentOS 7 server as well as a Ubuntu 20.04 server, same issue on both.
I also looked for an error log but couldn't see anything, if there is a specific log I should be looking at please let me know.
@Sanjeev I also just tried the same steps on the UV-Desk demo page and the file is corrupt as well.
I have found and corrected the issue.
In these two files
In the function "public function downloadAttachment(Request $request)", add the this line of code:
- $response->headers->set('Content-Length', $attachment->getSize());
- $response->headers->set('Content-Disposition', 'attachment; filename='. $attachment->getName());
@peopleinside Thanks again for the help!
