Unable to upload files to the server using Special:Upload

5 (talkcontribs)

I've set a new wiki and my details are: Product Version MediaWiki 1.20.3 PHP 5.3.21 (cgi-fcgi) MySQL 5.0.96-log

I tried almost everything possible to get my uploads, but I'm unable to do so. When I try to upload a file, the browser processes for a while and lands on the same page. When the upload logs were checked, there was no hint of any uploads. Please help me with a solution! (talkcontribs)

are you on windows 7?

This can happen if you have a wrong $wgServer which can be doing a redirect from one page to another on each post edit. If some post edits fails (for example, doing a search), this may be the problem. (talkcontribs)

Can you enlighten me on this issue

Imagine your wgServer is http//, but your web server is actually at and the server enforces it by redirecting all requests to http// to http// Then when you submit a form in your MediaWiki, it posts the data to http//, but before it reaches the PHP engine, the web server intercepts the requests and redirects it to http//, losing the posted data, so MediaWiki receives the request as if nothing has been submitted. If you enable debugging on MediaWiki you won't see any POST request.
