Upload file problem (After mediawiki software 1.31/1.32 update)
Hey. Could you please fix this problem where none of us can upload a file to the website. After trying to upload a pic file several times (and including editing the filename a bit and changing directory to grab the file from), it didn't work and led to this Action Failed page with the message below:
Jump to navigationJump to search Could not open lock file for "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/8/8b/Model2Emulator-logo.jpg". Make sure your upload directory is configured correctly and your web server has permission to write to that directory. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Manual:$wgUploadDirectory for more information.
Return to Main Page.
This issue seemed to occur after another admin, ITEM-3, updated this wiki's software from 1.26 or older to 1.31 or 1.32 on mid-February 2019. Inadvertently, it seems this has caused problems with file and image uploading processes here. As you can see, the last file uploaded to here was over 2 months ago, at the end of January 2019: Special:ListFiles & Special:Log/upload. ObiKKa (talk) 17:00, 1 May 2019 (EDT)
