The FileAttach extension allows files to be uploaded to the wiki from an "add attachment" tab in the page actions. The tab brings up the usual file upload special page, but then, when submitted, the file is added as an icon in a "File attachments" section at the end of the page, in addition to being uploaded into the wiki as usual.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called FileAttach in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php :
    require_once "$IP/extensions/FileAttach/FileAttach.php";
  • Configure file uploads
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
