Wiki uploads
« Topic Start: September 05, 2019, 01:26:52 PM »
Quick question, anyone else having an issue uploading images to the Wiki? I'm getting this error:

Could not open lock file for "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/ArylonCOA.png". Make sure your upload directory is configured correctly and your web server has permission to write to that directory. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Manual:$wgUploadDirectory for more information.

I've done a lot of wiki development over the years, and this is usually a folder permission issue in the upload directory... but why would that have changed?

I've been away from the game for a while and just came back so maybe there's stuff going on with the wiki I didn't know about, but I was trying to refresh a lot of my old content and it would be nice to work on some images.

Anyone have any insight?

We had to upgrade the Wiki to the latest version when we migrated to PHP 7, and somehow, despite following all the directions (so far as I could tell), that ended up being only partially successful, and left us with several problems, which we've been gradually tracking down and fixing since.

I will see if this one is as simple as a permissions issue later today.

No luck here, I'm guessing?

Things got busy, but now I've changed what I believe to be the correct permissions. Please try it again!

Damn. No, unfortunately I just tried to upload 5 different images, (jpegs, PNGs, etc) and they all failed. Same error got thrown:

Could not open lock file for "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/ArylonCOA.png". Make sure your upload directory is configured correctly and your web server has permission to write to that directory. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Manual:$wgUploadDirectory for more information.

OK, I've adjusted some more permissions; please give it another try.

I was able to upload an image and use it a day or so ago, so I'm betting that fixed it.
