I just installed mc on centOS 6.3 server specifically to edit war files, however, it won't let me browse/open any archive files (zip, war etc)?

I fixed the same problem by removing .magic file in my home directory.
Mc uses "file" command to determine given file type. In my case "file" always returned "data" as a file type - no matter what file I ran it for. I then strace-ed the call and it appeared "file" exited right after checking $HOME/.magic file. As soon as I removed the file, the problem was fixed.
One thing it might be:
Check the file /usr/share/mc/extfs/uzip
Change the line
