Troubles with sharing uploads[edit]

Hi !

I hope I post on the good page, else, please tell me where I should post...

We are actually creating a multi lingual scout wiki (like Wikipedia but about scoutism), at ScoutWiki

I'm trying to set up a "Common"-like, to share pictures & media between wikis: ScoutMedia

The trouble is that it does'nt seem to work.

Here is what I added to [ Scoutopedia] (french wiki) LocalSettings.php:

## Allow using ScoutMedia
$wgUseSharedUploads		= true;
## ScoutMedia upload directory
$wgSharedUploadPath		= "";
## ScoutMedia  upload directory structure
$wgHashedSharedUploadDirectory = true;

The Hashed is also set up on ScoutMedia

I uploaded a picture on ScoutMedia: Image:Brouette.jpg ( Brouette.jpg )

and I tried to insert it on Scoutopedia:


The trouble is that it doesn't work :-( (names are similar)

Can anyone help ?

Thanks :)

MediaWiki 1.17[edit]

On MediaWiki 1.16 it works fine, but If I set #$wgUseSharedUploads = true; on MediaWiki 1.17, it gives me the following error:

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was: 
(SQL query hidden)
 from within function "DatabaseBase::begin". Database returned error "0: ".

Any ideas are more than appreciated! Thanks + cheers, --Till Kraemer 19:02, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
