[Resolved] Could not open lock file after upgrade to 1.31

Upgraded both MW and ConfirmAccount to REL1_31. Am now receiving error:

Could not open lock file for "mwstore://accountreqs-backend/accountreqs-public/e/el/eli/elinux:acctrequest:ip:". Make sure your upload directory is configured correctly and your web server has permission to write to that directory

Confirmed the upload directory /images is set to perms 775 recursively.

In ConfirmAccount.config I see:

# Storage repos.

$wgConfirmAccountFSRepos = [

        'accountreqs' => [ # Location of attached files for pending requests

                'name'       => 'accountreqs',

                'directory'  => false,

                'url'        => null,

                'hashLevels' => 3,


        'accountcreds' => [ # Location of credential files

                'name'       => 'accountcreds',

                'directory'  => false,

                'url'        => null,

                'hashLevels' => 3,



This confuses me as the error is on accountreqs-public? Similarly, aren't these directories? Why is 'directory' => false?

Ugh, nevermind, all I had to do was chown apache -R images/
