(RESOLVED) Uploaded Files with "Umlauts" won't be found

My Wiki runs in German.

Whenever I upload a file that contains an umlaut in its filename, "schäden.png" for instance, the file will be upload under "sch#%&den.png" (something like that). Renaming that file by hand to "schäden.png" makes it be found again.

How can I get those umlauts to be kept within the filenames?

I just can't find any solutions here.

Thanks a lot!

Are you still having this problem? -PatPeter, Tournesol.pngMediaWiki Support Team 23:43, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
Yes. I wonder if it has to do with Windows? Since my first entry, I have one Wiki set up on Win XP, one Wiki on Win 2000 and one Wiki set up under Mac OSX. All in German. All set up from scratch. All with their own resources and extensions. While I have no problem at all with uploading files with German umlauts under Mac OSX, it won't work -- as described -- under Win XP and Win 2000. Same Browsers used under those systems (Firefox, Safari, Opera, IE7 on Windows). I use WOSportable on Windows and MAMP on OSX. Or is it WOSportable? --84.145.122.49 15:36, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
I think you have to upload them in unicode format. Is your wiki set in German language code? -PatPeter, Tournesol.pngMediaWiki Support Team 20:45, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

(OUTDATED) PDF woes

  • MediaWiki: 1.11.0
  • PHP: 5.2.5
  • MySQL: 5.0.45
  • URL: Internal only

I don't have an error; just a problem.
Actually, 2 problems. Here's the scenario: I have ~1000 pdf manuals I would like searchable and indexed into my wiki.

  1. How do I transfer files to a wiki without doing them 1 at a time? I tried just putting 1 into the images dir but it looks like they need a DB entry as well.
  2. How do I make pdf files searchable on my wiki? I would love to do it as google has; click here for the file or click here to see it in html format.

I have searched though every extension that I could find. Most of the extensions about pdfs are for creating pdfs out of wiki pages.
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks!

There's the importImages.php maintenance script, but that's just bare-bones, and uploading them as files won't index the text contents as far as I'm aware. Tuvok[Talk/en.wp] 08:28, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
That looks like it will import the pdfs. I'll have to go through the php and see if I can make it recursive. I think there's a couple hundred folders.
How's about making them search-able?
Forgot to sign my last comment.. Doh! —bruceWayne 14:22, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
How is this going for you? As for making pdfs searchable you would have to configure your Wiki to be able to read the pdf text and then mod SpecialSearch.php to include whatever folder these are in. -PatPeter, Tournesol.pngMediaWiki Support Team 02:35, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Do you want to upload them or allow users to view them? Please read Manual:LocalSettings.php, you are going to have to add
$wgFileExtensions   = array('jpg','jpeg','png','ogg','ico','bmp','rom','ukx','uc','uax','usx','utx','u');
To it except with the extensions you want.
$wgFileExtensions   = array('doc','docx','ppt','pps');

Hi,

I've seen a couple of threads on here about uploading different file formats but none of them seem to be answered (please correct me if i'm wrong).

Basically i need want to upload different files to my internal wiki site. how do i go about doing this? Is it as simple as changing the file extensions in LocalSettings.php?

Any input greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Go in LocalSettings.php and add

Except with the extensions you want. I can't believe someone didn't get to you sooner, this is really simple. Also if you have any more questions like this please read all of Manual:LocalSettings.php, before doing so. -PatPeter, Tournesol.pngMediaWiki Support Team 02:31, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

When I am trying to upload a file on Special:Upload I get the error message "This file is bigger than the server is configured to allow.", but only for files bigger than 5K!

(RESOLVED) Uploads are timing out

Whenever I try to upload a large file the screen eventually goes blank. I believe this to be because of the server timing out on the upload. Is there anyway to change the server configuration to never time out, something like:

$wgUploadTimeOut = 0;

Either that or it is my browser, because it also will not let me upload files on the main page of the website.

Times out when trying to upload a file over the max file upload limit in php.ini. Shouldn't MediaWiki have a error message rather than just timing out?

I have a Wiki installation in which uploading of images and pdf's is enabled. All worked well, but after some tests the same error is thrown (translated from Dutch):

you just add

If the wiki uses another language the tag name may vary. Use the editing button "embedded file" (6th button) in edit mode to insert the image. As long as the image has not been uploaded ("Upload file" in the toolbox) the wiki will only show a link Image:foobar.jpg that also leads to the upload form. --BurninLeo 10:00, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

If you can find a workaround more power to you, but I'm going to suggest that if you are just starting out and it wouldn't be too difficult, change hosts. I see you started this wiki on April 6, so while it might be a hassle to move, or re do the work you've done, it could prevent more hardships later. But honestly I don't know, it might not be a problem at all.
You seem to be using WEBSUPPORTERS.COM. That's a pretty good price, if my currency converter calculator is correct, though they don't give you a lot of disk space. So it's your call. I can't help you with a workaround, though, sorry. Smaug Tournesol.png 14:48, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

which basically translates to

Internal error

The thing is that upload_tmp_dir (as reported by ini_get) is F:\Intranet\upload_tmp, not C:\Windows\Temp. The upgrade has not touched either of these directories, and it was working 2 weeks ago with the previous version. I just tried reverting to 1.10.0 and voila, the upload worked again.

(OUTDATED) Trouble in images upload

Hi all i'm Ugo and i come from Italy, just start a my new wiki project with your fantastic software. I'm having trouble about upload images, i've read enoug on manual, but no one template in there ( i mean template step to step for newbies).
FIRST QUESTION : When i try to insert an image and i use the link File:Imgexample.jpg i have the link, then i click the link and go to the upload form; here something happen.. because he says : " the folder can't be written by the server" ( i have the folder "images" in my main wiki directory setting to 755 permission). What i need is an explaination "step to step" about how i have to compile the form ( with the right paths) with simple examples.
SECOND QUESTION : Is there a way to show directly an external image on my wiki page ( for example http://www.mysite.com/imgexample.jpg )? I have tried to do this, but the only result is to have a link to the image and not the image directly. Sorry for my bad English and thanks in advance for any help you can !

(RESOLVED) Upload File Error on Windows

I setup the following paramerers in the localsettings.php and created the directory under images, but I get an upload error. I've checked the Windows directory permissions and it's fine. Any suggestions?

$wgUploadDirectory	= "127.0.0.1/mediawiki/images/DEV";

Update: I removed the $wgUploadDirectory parameter from the localsettings.php file and the upload worked to the default directory. Is there a bug in 1.11 when using the $wgUploadDirectory parameter?

(OUTDATED) Upload of doc, xls, ppt files fails (not a general upload issue)

  • MediaWiki: 1.12.0

When using these kind of files the uploadcorrupt message appears. Here is the german message: Die Datei ist beschädigt oder hat eine falsche Datei-Erweiterung.

I got no clue what it is about. The files are allowed (strict is set to false), the size is ok and the files are not corrupt.

In generall uploads do work. I enabled debug, that is what it found, look at mime:

I got the same mediawiki version (+php 5.2.3-1ubuntu6.3) on another system installed where it works. The same file there shows MIME-Typ: application/vnd.ms-excel.

So what is MimeMagic doing here or what uses it to get the MIME, could there something wrong on my system?

Any help would be appreciated.

(OUTDATED) uploading large files

  • MediaWiki: 1.12.0
  • PHP: 5.1.2 (apache2filter)
  • MySQL: 5.0.19-standard
  • URL: password-protected

I am having a problem uploading large files using Mediawiki version 1.12.0. If I upload small PDF or PPT file, I have no problem; but if I try to upload a large file, I get the error

"The connection was reset
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
-The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

I have googled this problem extensively and can't figure out the solution. Incidentally, if I put the file on a local server and upload using the URL, the problem does not occur. I have already made a set of changes in LocalSettings.php and in /etc/php.ini to increase the maximum upload size; that fixed the problem for URL uploads, but not yet for uploads from a client's hard drive.

128.36.102.191 19:25, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

(OUTDATED) During the upload, I get the message "Could not rename file "$1" to "$2"", but my rights are OK! (at least I think so...)

Hi, all! I have a problem. Please, help me!

First of all I notice that I've read almost all about uploading and concurrent problems. But I haven't found solution of my problem. I even met similar problems like my one but there are no any intelligible solutions.

There is a fragment of my LocalSetting.php:

$wgSitename               = "Wikimir";
$wgLocalInterwiki         = $wgSitename;
$wgAllowExternalImages    = true;
$wgEnableUploads          = true;
$wgHashedUploadDirectory  = true;
//$wgUploadDirectory        = "$IP/images";
//$wgUploadPath             = "$wgScriptPath/images";
//$wgVerifyMimeType         = false;

So, when I try to upload an image such message occurs: Could not rename file "/var/tmp/php5wljeN" в "public/7/76/Pic_03.jpg". My folder "images" has free access for all (0777). Folder images/public doesn't exist, but I tried to create it and set to 0777. Without result. I even wrote small script to upload files into folder images and created subdirectories inside it. All is ok. Apache is able to write and create directories inside this folder.

By the way, when I use $wgHashedUploadDirectory = false I have no any problems with uploading...

So, I have no any ideas in which direction I should advance. Maybe someone give me a hint? Thanks a lot!

217.9.147.66 11:48, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi! Try to create a folger /public directly in the wiki-directory (sibling to /images). Usually the mediawiki places images in /images/1/2/imagename.png and I do not know why your images should be placed in /public/1/2/..., but creating that public folder with write-access should do the trick.

(OUTDATED) Is it possible to upload edittools and licencing option in the Upload file function?

Dear Sirs,

People for Earth is about to release the beta version of an ECO community & WIKI ECO GUIDE called My ECO Guide that is mediawiki based.

Our programmers have integrated most of the mediawiki open source code into People for Earth system, however, there are some remaining open issues – mostly about some features that are part of mediawiki.org, but our programmers say they are not available for our application. However, we find them crucial for success of our wiki, since the rest of programming is first class. We would really appreciate your comments on the following issues in order to proceed with our project.

  1. 1. Can we integrate your edditools that can be found on any of your edit pages (e.g. into our wiki system?

Our programmers said: We are using the open-source provided by the mediawiki 1.12. So we can have only those editing tools that are provided in that source code. In the mediawiki source code they have not given these tools: see link [3]

  1. 2. Licencing feature in the UPLOAD FILE toolbox in the left navigation Special:Upload

Our programmers SAID : We cannot add the “Licensing” over here. It is not given in the mediawiki code. We cannot add it over it. We can just show if you want but it will not be stored nor it will be shown afterwards. So it doesn’t make any sense. They might have changed this after releasing the Mediawiki 1.12. We can have the features that are provided in the mediawiki open-source 1.12.

Can these two functions be implemented into our wiki system based on mediawiki?

Thank you very much for your help,

Auch innerhalb von MediaWiki wird alles richtig angezeigt. Allerdings speichert der die Datei nicht als Käse.jpg sondern K%C3%A4se.jpg.

Where can I configure the upload directory and/or can it be stored in the database (in our old wiki this was passible)? I can do uploads but $wgUploadDirectory did not give me control where the files are stored. How are the files stored (with normal names - I guess not, as there is a versioning).

(RESOLVED) How can I use $wgForeignFileRepos for connecting to Wikimedia Commons?

How can I use $wgForeignFileRepos directive for connecting to MediaWiki Commons? It probably should be obvious, but it isn't for beginner like me.

Thanks in advance for any help,

check Manual:$wgForeignFileRepos again

(OUTDATED) Upload to Multiple Locations

  • MediaWiki version: 1.13.1
  • PHP version: 5.2.6
  • MySQL version: 5.0
  • URL: secured

I want the files people upload to be actually organized so a human can easily go in and find a file on the disk. I have a handful of different groups of users. In theory, it would be nice if the files were organized into separate directories according to these groups. Is there a means of doing this?

Two Potential Solutions:

  • Can a separate upload path be specified by group?
  • Can a folder path be entered with the filename when uploading to specify its upload path?

Thanks.

(OUTDATED) uploading from a database, excel or CSV a massive number of articles

  • MediaWiki version: latest
  • PHP version: 5
  • MySQL version: latest
  • URL: NA

I am considering using mediawiki to create a massive database (300,000 plus) of product information starting with data which I have in excel.

The idea is to start with the data I have and then allow anyone to contribute opinions, reviews, how-to information, and comments to the individual articles (products)

Is there a script or tool that will manage the upload?

My data includes links to pictures, so I would rather use the links than upload the images. Can that be done?

Is this idea reasonable as a good use of this tool?
