    Can you hover over the actual link before clicking to download it so that we can see what it shows the actual path for the file? If it's wrongly detecting the file type, then that's an issue with that browser more than anything.

    I can duplicate this in IE8. Not clicking a file, opening a URL mydomain.com/filename.xlsx it opens a prompt asking if I want to save filename.zip, I select yes and a prompt opens asking where to save, on that window select where, give the file name shown the correct extension .xlsx and below file name select All Files instead of zip file.

    yes but question is why we need to do that every time for all websites on the server ??
    this is the alternate solutions not primary

    the same thing is working on our other sever where i don't need to follow steps mentioned by inforpro

    You might find something to go on here.

    Like this tip for example:

    Now if that tip does indeed work for you, we can safely assume this is not an issue with cPanel I would think. :)

    GL!
