open Localsettings.php and change/uncomment :

$wgEnableUploads       = true;
$wgUseImageResize      = true;

> (I do not want users to be able to upload images for now)

in Localsettings.php, add :

$wgGroupPermissions['user'    ]['upload']      	= false; #($wgGroupPermissions['*'    ]['upload']      	= false; is implicit)

only sysop will be able to upload, if you want no-one but you to be able to upload, you must set the upload right to false for everyone (bot,sysop,bureaucrat,...) and then you create a "uploader" group :

$wgGroupPermissions['uploadergroup'    ]['upload']      	= true;

and using your bureaucrat power, you set yourself in the uploadergroup group (use special page : Special:Userrights)
