Upload dir "not writable" under XAMPP setup - How to make writable??
I am running mediawiki as a localhost setup for development/learning.
The environment is XAMPP (so, Apache, MySQL, PhP, etc.) in WinXP.
Everything is going well ... except for "uploads".
I have read this, and everything else I can find on enabling uploads.
For some reason I keep getting this error message:
"The upload directory ($/images) is not writable by the webserver."
I have checked the apache aliases (none), I have set the flag in the
mediawiki configuration, checked the directory names/path, checked the
directory properties in Windoze, etc. I still cannot get past that
error message. I tried simply copying a .PNG to the /images directory,
but of course that can't be found by mediawiki.
Thanks for that! Good idea, but it doesn't seem to have done the
trick. It results in variations on the error message:
"The upload directory ([whatever dir spec I put in LocalSettings.php])
is not writable by the webserver."
I tried changing both path and dir, in various combinations. :(
Everything else in the installation seems to be working beautifully
(and I have a couple of CMSs purring away, too). It's just the upload
option in MW that seems to be sticky.....
