  • User1888206822 posted

    All but 3 of my 26 images have links to non-existent folders inside my image folder. All the images "missing" are in the /wiki/image "root" but the links point to sub folders that don't exist.

    Running 1.35.2 on IIS10, Windows 2019 Server Standard

    PHP 7.4.19, MySQL 8.0.25

    PHP extensions enabled: php_exif.dll, php_fileinfo,dll, php_intl.dll, php_mbstring.dll, php_mysqli.dll, php_openssl.dll

    Upgrade sequence:

    Copied new files on top of old files. Deleted old folders not in the 1.35.2 distribution

    Ran update successfully. Connected to site but got an error page indicating my 1.27.4 localsetting.php wouldn't work. Deleted localsetting.php, re-entered all the correct information and wiki started.

    I was missing this line in my upgraded LocalSettings.php files:

    ## If you want to use image uploads under safe mode,
    ## create the directories images/archive, images/thumb and
    ## images/temp, and make them all writable. Then uncomment
    ## this, if it's not already uncommented:
    $wgHashedUploadDirectory = false;
