Shared uploads: $wgHashedSharedUploadDirectory
Whether to hash the shared upload directory.
Introduced in version: 1.3.8
Removed in version: still in use
Allowed values: (boolean)
Default value: true
Other settings: Alphabetical | By function


If you operate multiple wikis, you can define a shared upload path using $wgSharedUploadPathManual:$wgSharedUploadPath. If $wgUseSharedUploadsManual:$wgUseSharedUploads is set, the wiki will look in the shared repository if no file of the given name is found in the local repository (for [[Image:..]], [[Media:..]] links).

If true, new subdirectory is created in /images folder (e.g. /images/a/ab/foo.jpg) for each file upload. If false, all images are uploaded in /images folder itself, see also Manual:$wgHashedUploadDirectoryManual:$wgHashedUploadDirectory.

Set this setting to false especially if you have a set of files that need to be accessible by all wikis, and you do not want to use the hash (path/a/aa/) directory layout.

Setting this to true is equivalent to setting the hashLevels property in $wgForeignFileReposManual:$wgForeignFileRepos to 2.
