    Answered: Cannot upload DBF files to JIRA on Windows

    Hello!
    I get the following error text: Unknown Server Error (500).
    The following appears in the atlassian-jira.log:
    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Error parsing media type 'application/DBF Viewer 2000'

    "This is caused by incorrect MIME handling by Windows when 'DBF Viewer 2000' is installed. The 'DBF Viewer 2000' program associates the .DBF file extension with 'application/DBF Viewer 2000' instead of 'application/octet-stream'. Remove 'DBF Viewer 2000' from the affected system. If you are still experiencing the issue I can suggest you online service https://onlinefilerepair.com/en/dbf-repair-online.html"

    I'll begin by saying that I know nothing about JIRA.

    Regardless, if this is a one-time effort, then I'd recommend that you convert the DBF data table contents into a different format before attempting to import it.

    There are a number of ways to convert a DBF file into something different.

    1. You can use a 3rd party tool to convert it to a CSV file - do a Google search for dbftocsv
    2. If you have a copy of Excel 2000 or 2003, you can Open a DBF file into it (later versions of Excel will not work). Once it is open in Excel you can do a SaveAs... into another format such as CSV

    However if this needs to be an on-going effort (more than one-time) then you want to use ODBC to access data from the DBF file.

    Good Luck
