If MediaWiki is insisting that uploads are not enabled, it means that
the effective value of $wgEnableUploads is being reset to false at
some point prior to the end of LocalSettings.php execution, or perhaps
extension initialisation, etc.

Add the line $wgEnableUploads = true; to LocalSettings.php at the end
of the file. If the line "?>" is present, remove it.
