Configuring file uploads ⌘

We need to enable file uploads in LocalSettings.php and php.ini.

You may wish to change max file size allowed. This can be done in your php.ini file.

On Ubuntu it is found in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

Adding a file ⌘

By default you need to be logged in to upload a file

To upload a file just click on the "Upload file" link under Toolbox on the sidebar or navigate to Special:Upload

You can change what file types are allowed in LocalSettings.php

$wgFileExtensions = array();

certain file types are dangerous to allow however, see http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Images_and_other_uploaded_files WikiFileUpload.png
