Small correction to previous message: Windows.
From what I understand, Windows based systems have
trouble parsing certain characters when MediaWiki is run on a WAMP stack due to the
Windows settings for saving filenames.

Is your web stack on a Wnodws based system? If so, they have known issues with special
character file names.

Subject: [MediaWiki-l] Enabling special character file names
I'd like to allow special characters in file names on my Wiki. For example,
currently I'd like some file names to include Greek letters like alpha and
beta. In order to avoid being accused of using this list as my personal
"Google" I am giving you the details of all my searches of Google and
Wikimedia sites. I have checked https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T3780
I couldn't see any solutions to this problem. I was going to try
but after I searched
SpecialUpload.php I did not find anywhere in the file with
in it, hence I couldn't even give it a try (granted that posted made almost
8 years ago).
I also found https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/FileBackend
after searching for
FileBackend, as it was a popular topic in this thread, in a MediaWiki
search but I hadn't the foggiest how it applied to what I wanted. I also
but I haven't a clue what the accepted answer meant for me.
Thanks for your time,
