Media Wiki - Upload file configuration

To enable uploading of files on media wiki, first enable the settings on PHP.INI

file_uploads = On

Then on your LocalSettings.php (under wiki site root folder), apply these changes:

Turn on the file upload:

$wgEnableUploads   = true

Set your upload directory. This is where your uploaded files will be saved:

$wgUploadDirectory = "c:/Sites/PHP/mediawiki-1.16.0/uploads";

Set your upload url. This is the url to use for downloading your files.

$wgUploadPath  = $wgScriptPath."/uploads";
For example: http://wiki.mysite.com/uploads/myfile.txt.

To modify the file types that can be uploaded:
$wgFileExtensions = array_merge($wgFileExtensions, array('doc', 'xls'));



To access the upload page, add this string on the url:

index.php?title=Special:Upload

For example:

http://wiki.mysite.com/index.php?title=Special:Upload


If you want some advanced configurations on file uploads such as setting upload size limit, file types, etc, you can find it on their media wiki's website.
