Is there any way to export all upload at once, or I need to copy/paste every pagename to Special:Export ?

Export all uploads
Well, there is Exporting all the files of a wiki, but I think this is way more complicated than what you, or maybe anyone, would need.
The simpler method would be to use the "Add pages from namespace" option in Special:Export.
@AhmadF.Cheema My wiki only gives me the option of Add pages from category, I do not have the option of Add pages from category.
Why is this ?
Probably need to set $wgExportFromNamespaces to true.
@AhmadF.Cheema exporting the upload pages only exports the pagename, but not the upload itself.
how can I export also the uploads ?
All files are placed on the filesystem. MediaWiki doesn't provide an easy way to download all of them at once.
If you have FTP access, you can navigate to the upload directory and download all files. An alternative if you don't have FTP access is to use Manual:Grabbers and use the grabImages.php script. Note however that this script requires a full MediaWiki installation locally.
