Description

I was trying to upload a file (jpg) to the wiki and it took me to an Internal Error page with the following text (screenshot attached):

"The upload directory (public) is not writable by the webserver."

History

#1 Updated by local admin over 8 years ago

Seems like the /images folder is owned by commons:commons, rather than commons:apache.

#2 Updated by local admin over 8 years ago

Sarah, I've changed the folder permission there to squash the bug. Should be ok now. (Still gotta look into what caused the problem, though) : /

#3 Updated by local admin over 8 years ago

I changed it. I caused the problem.

660  ll /var/www/html/wiki/images/
661 chown -R commons:commons $_

Don't remember why. (wtf!)

Thanks for your quick response, André! Sarah, can you confirm that it is working now?

Glad I was online. No problem.

But hey, I may have blamed myself too readily!

I see a bunch of commands in history that I definitely didn't issue. Stuff about github and stuff. Totally weird.
Like, who commited this? Am I going crazy?

375  git commit -m "added wiki/images to folders ignored in .gitignore"

I thought only root's command got logged on that history and I don't think anyone else has root's pw... Hmm, I guess I have some more home-work to do.

I was able to upload and embed the image on a wiki page. Many thanks, André!

Cool, I'll close the ticket and take the mystery elsewhere : )

Sorted it out on Basecamp. No action needed, guys.
