I use MadieWiki 1.35.2 on Ubuntu. Everything works fine including image upload.

Now I allowed also PDF upload via

$wgFileExtensions = [ 'png', 'gif', 'jpg', 'jpeg', 'webp', 'pdf' ];

Unfortuately it does not work. I get the error

Fehler beim Hochladen

Das Verzeichnis „mwstore://local-backend/local-public/5/5f“ konnte nicht angelegt werden.

The permissions seems to be Ok since I can actually upload images.

Enabling the "PdfHandler" extension (of course with all needed packages installed) makes no difference. I get the same error.

Any clue about the reason of this issue i.e. why does especially an upload of a PDF gives this error?

Thanks TheDJ.

Your reply did help to get a clue what's wrong. I enabled debug output and there was indeed still a permissions issue.

The "images" directory itself was owned by root and not by www-data and therefore the upload was not possible because no sub directory could be created.
