I am currently trying to get file uploads to work in mediawiki 1.16.1 ,
but I keep getting the error message: "The upload directory (public) is
not writable by the webserver". I chmodded the upload directory to 777
(yes, I am aware of the security risk), but to no avail. Does anyone
know the right trick to solve this problem?
The upload directory that I have set in my Localsettings.php file is:
$wgUploadPath = "/mediawiki/file_uploads";
If I check
the folder exists.
These are the file permissions for this folder:
ls -lanh mediawiki/file_uploads
drwxrwsrwx 2 198048 198048 2 Jan 17 17:35 .
drwxrwsr-x 15 198048 198048 45 Jan 17 17:36 ..
note that the apache user has id 900, but given the folder's
permissions, this should still work, right?
