    That’s strange, I think Word docs are permitted by default so it’s possible that your host has stopped it, in which case this solution may not work. But you can try adding a function to your theme (or create a small custom plugin for your site customisation functions):

    function doublee_add_custom_mime_types($mimes){
    return array_merge($mimes,array (
    'doc' => 'application/msword',
    'docx' => 'application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document',

    For anyone who comes across this thread and needs other MIME types, there’s a great list here: https://paulund.co.uk/change-wordpress-upload-mime-types
