FMServer 15 on dedicated MacOs Yosemite. Clients: FMPAdvanced15 or Webdirect.

PDF or XLSX files are created and stored in container field.

Exporting them with FM15 works flawlessly.

Exporting via WebDirect works, but files cannot be opened (same for PDF and XLSX files):.
Error message for PDF:

Adobe Acrobat DC could not open 'Status Active Jobs - 18-10-2016(1).pdf' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).

Error message for XLSX:

Excel cannot open this file. The file format or file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file.

When opening XLSX with OpenOffice it opens as wordprocessing document and not spreadsheet:
