Block uploads by file type using dotDefender in Linux

Jun 11, 2013 by GeekNew
Hi all
I am using dotDefender dotDefender for Linux v 3.85, and I want to prevent PHP and CFM files from being uploaded to my server in any web form. I want to simply block PHP files as well as CFM files based on their file extension (.php and .cfm). How can I do this? Any help is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advanced
