I have sat here for hours trying to research this problem extensively and am back to square 1. I have followed the examples
on the previous pages to no avail.
I have an issue similar to the one I found from Adba.swht 4 years ago. (Unable to display file in Mediawiki)
The problem is that files upload are being created at the root folder for some reason.
Here is what i have in the Localsettings.php file.
$wgUploadDirectory = "$IP/images";
$wgUploadPath = "$wgScriptPath/images";
If I change it to $wgUploadPath = "/inetpub/wwwroot/mediawiki/images";
I get the following error message:
Could not open lock file for "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/e/eb/ABCover.jpg". Make sure your upload directory is configured correctly and your web server has permission to write to that directory.
See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Manual:$wgUploadDirectory for more information.
I changed the upload path to $wgUploadDirectory = "/mediawiki2/images";
just to verify it is being created and sure enough at C:\mediawiki2\images
the files are created. ie. /f/ff/testimage.jpg
Its not that the files dont upload, its that when they do then
1. The file itself cannot be found
2. The thumbnail fails to render (Error creating thumbnail: File missing)
Also, the system temp folder keeps creating phpXXX.tmp files
this is probably related so I figured its worth mentioning.
As stated before I have tried several examples but nothing seems to work.
Any and all help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
