Easier said than done, but: we need images working.

Is it possible to make a plan to investigate required fixes and get them working ?

Enabling Image Support Work Log

(This post is technical notes on the process of enabling image uploading and correcting the image gallery bug on OESF Wiki. I am recording it hear since a bug in our anti-spam software has me temporarily locked out of changing the wiki. I will transfer this information to the wiki once I am able to. I will update this post or its successor wiki page as I progress.)

1. Enabling File Upload

Relevant articles on MediaWiki and SiteGround.

Our LocalSettings.php sets only the pre-1.5 version parameter, $wgDisableUploads (to false, which would supposedly work if our wiki was still pre-1.5), so I comment-out that line and add a setting for the 1.5+ parameter:

$wgEnableUploads                = true;

Now I can open the the wiki upload page.

2. Ain't Misbehavin'

Filling-in and submitting the upload form returns the following HTTP error page, which I believe is generated by the Bad Behavior anti-spam extension and not by MediaWiki itself (this is not the same as the error previously reported by gaarder):

Error 403

We're sorry, but we could not fulfill your request for /index.php?title=Special:Upload on this server.

Technical Support

Your request was intercepted by Bad Behavior, security software which protects the Web site you visited from malicious activity, such as hackers, spam and viruses. We apologize for the inconvenience, but your request matched a profile of suspicious activity. This problem is usually quite easy to fix.

Your request was blocked because of malicious automated requests received from your computer's IP address.

Your computer's IP address was determined to have recently sent spam or engaged in malicious activity as reported by a third-party monitoring service. This means your computer is most likely infected with viruses or other malicious software. See below for more information and removal instructions.

This problem may be caused by viruses or spyware on your computer, or by malicious software that pretends to be anti-virus or anti-spyware software. Ensure that you have REAL anti-virus and anti-spyware software on your computer, that they are kept up-to-date, and that you have run a full system scan using each tool. Once your system is cleaned of viruses and spyware, please try your request again.

The free Google Pack provides trustworthy anti-virus and anti-spyware software.

This may also occur with old versions of Bad Behavior. If you do not see any blacklist providers listed below, and you are the site administrator, try updating to the latest version of Bad Behavior.

Well Meyer, I can't log in at the wiki.. I get the same response as you and a key which takes me to the same message. sad.gif

I think it might be wise to revert your changes relating to uploads and see what happens. unsure.gif I'll try and review the files and look again at what I was looking at with regard to the problem. I'm rather pushed for time at the moment.... sad.gif

Meyer, my cursory research said to do 3, perhaps 4, things.

1. make the image directory writeable.
2. $wgEnableUploads = true; as you mention
3. and alter the DefaultSettings.php $wgFileExtensions to permit various image file extensions.
4. ?? setting StrictFileExtensions = false;

I presume you did number 1? You did number 2. I suppose the details are irrelevent if BadBehaviour is bugging us now?

I wonder if there are some security measures taken in the past that are conflicting with what you are attempting?

dz, if you get the chance please review what the changes were when you or Offroadgeek stopped file uploads. It might be relevent! blink.gif

I'll pm dz and ask him to take a look and perhaps point us in the right direction.

Cheers biggrin.gif
