Unknown Error: "unknown" edit

When trying to upload an image, I always get the error Unknown error: "unknown". Is there a way to get more information about reasons for this error? Using MediaWiki 1.20.2 and PHP 5.4.9 on IIS. Thank you!

Mediawiki.Uri Error edit

I get the following error in Chrome:

Uncaught Error: Unknown dependency: mediawiki.Uri
recurse      load.php:3965

resolve      load.php:4000
resolve      load.php:3989
loader.load  load.php:4307
(anonymous function)

I think that it is related to the mediawiki.Uri.js file that is supposed to be inside the Resources folder of my wiki. However, I'm using the latest 1.17 version and it still won't work. I can't find the older (legacy) version of this extension. Any ideas?? Thanks! --Fladei 23:16, 15 November 2011 (UTC)Reply

EDIT: You didn't use version 1.17 for the extension I am guessing. If you select to download the version for 1.18, it will give you that error.

I get the following error in Firefox 5.0:

and read me error is nowhere to be found, not even in trunk. Help is highly appreciated.

No instructions edit

Why no instructions on how to install this? Pretty ridiculous if you expect everyone to know how to automatically install this. I uploaded it, tried to add it to my localsettings and wham, nothing.

Yes I have had the same problem. I follow meticulously the several steps but nothing happen when I try on the wiki. Is something missing in the install tutorial ? Workworkwork 21:45, 14 August 2011 (UTC)Reply

Same issue.. Install ImageMagick? ok where? and am I'm then supposed to install commandline features on my server? Wonder what my ISP think of that.

Multi-upload edit

Why do I still have to pick each file manually? Other upload forms allow you to select more than 1 file in the "browsing window". Or even drag'n'drop. If Flickr and Gmail use such features, it can't be user unfriendly. --Subfader 19:26, 2 April 2011 (UTC)Reply

Upload Wizard stops while uploading edit

Hi, UploadWizard starts uploading and files are saved in the image directory - but then it stops at the second step, see image. Tested in MW 1.16 and MW 1.17.


I get the following error message:

Upload Wizard gets stucked edit

Hi! I could install Upload Wizard, so whenever I go to Special:UploadWizard I can seee the Wikimedia Commons tutorial and select a file to upload but when I choose the file Upload Wizard gets stuck in the process of uploading and after waiting a while the file doesn't upload but I don't get any error message. I am using Mediawiki 1.20. Please help! Thanks

Uploads fail, "readapidenied" edit

Whenever I try to upload a file (or multiple files), I get the same error every time:

The server returned an error we did not understand: "readapidenied"

Additionally (not sure if this is related), when I select a file to upload, its path is displayed as "C:\fakepath\foo.jpg", no matter when on my disk the file actually lies.

Adding categories with colons in them edit

Optional configuration values edit

I have installed it at my own wiki website 1.17 and can confirm it works as expected. However, i have a few suggestions. I think it would be better to add additional configuration settings to disable/enable the various pages in the wizard. For example the first learn page, although informative, it's a bit too much for many people. Long, English and the text cannot be modified and for small website it may not be necessary. In addition as another user here commented it should be possible to add multiple files without having to add one at a time. Other than that thank you for this extension, we really needed some good user interface for many parts of mediawiki to make it attractive and inviting for the regular user and this is one step forward. -- User:Wikimanz

Tutorial is translated, see e.g. commons:File:Licensing tutorial de.svg, and an option skipTutorial exists, e.g. as in (undocumented, check UploadWizard.config.php for further options):
$wgUploadWizardConfig = array(
'autoCategory' => 'Uploaded with UploadWizard',
'feedbackPage' => 'UploadWizard Feedback',
'altUploadForm' => 'Special:Upload',
'fallbackToAltUploadForm' => false, # true -> "-...been disabled due to temporary technical problems..."
'enableMultiFileSelect' => true,
'maxSimultaneousConnections' => 5, // default 3. Max number of simultaneous upload requests 
'skipTutorial' => true, 	// Set skipTutorial to true to always skip tutorial step

Problem with the extension using Mediawiki in French edit

I had a problem using the extension with Mediawiki 1.17 in French. Whenever I tried to upload content, I clicked the the button to select a file, the dialog popped up but when I clicked "Open" it did not add files to the list. I looked at the Javascript error log and found out it seemed to be a problem with the namespace in which image files are added ("file" in English, but "fichier" in French) which seemed to be why I had this bug.

I then corrected 3 lines in combined.min.js (I could have done it in combine.js but I do not know how to minify it again). I changed the following lines: 10536 this.title=new mw.Title(mw.UploadWizardUtil.getBasename(localFilename),'fichier'); 10945 _this.upload.title=new mw.Title(mw.UploadWizardUtil.getBasename(path),'fichier'); 11397 var title=new mw.Title(result.title).setNamespace('fichier').getNameText();

I hope this can help someone, there must be a way to correct this problem but for now I managed to make the extension work. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 15:57, Nov 24, 2011 (UTC)

Generality issues edit

I've been seeking to add batch upload functionality to my MediaWiki installation, and came across this extension today. While it works after a fashion, it seems too specialized for use in the Wikimedia Commons. Here are some first impressions:

  • Upon every use, it displays a 'Learn' page suitable for new Wikimedia Commons users or small children, requiring the user to scroll down and click 'Next' to begin.
  • This 'Next' button is sometimes faded out and unusable for reasons that are not clear. This seems to include any time the 'Upload more files' button is used to restart the wizard.
  • Navigation is possible only by buttons at the bottom of the page, which never include 'Back', and not by the progress indicator at the top.
  • The 'Learn' page displays a large, red error banner if Instant Commons is not enabled.
  • The 'Upload' page has its own extension-checking mechanism, ignoring settings in LocalSettings.php that are specifically designed for that purpose.
  • The 'Upload' page hangs indefinitely on any attempt to upload a file that already exists or was previously deleted, and does not give the opportunity to change the file name to avoid a collision.
  • The 'Release rights' and 'Describe' pages require licensing and description metadata for each file, even when the wiki is configured to not require that information.
  • The 'Go to wiki home page' link at the end of the 'Use' page does not link to the wiki home page, but to the top level of the web domain, which in my case is a 403 error.

The version is UploadWizard-MW1.17-r85033.

Unable to upload edit

First try.
Second try

First, after complete all the forms, it said «Boletín_Oficial_de_la_República_Argentina_(01/07/1893).gif [api-error-unknownerror]». Then, after retry (as .jpeg), it denies to allow {{PD-100 }} as licence (but preview works fine). So, I must use the old upload page.

Upload files from blacklist edit


In my wiki I've got disabled BlackList file extensions by code:

$wgStrictFileExtensions = false;
$wgCheckFil--~~~~eExtensions = false;
#$wgFileExtensions = array( 'png', 'gif', 'jpg', 'jpeg', 'ppt', 'pptx', 'pdf', 'psd', 'mp3', 'xls', 'xlsx', 'swf', 'doc','docx', 'odt', 'odc', 'odp', 'odg', 'mpp', 'exe');
$wgFileBlacklist = array_diff( $wgFileBlacklist, array( 'html', 'htm', 'js', 'jsb', 'mhtml', 'mht', 'php', 'phtml', 'php3', 'php4', 'php5', 'phps', 'shtml', 'jhtml', 'pl', 'py', 'cgi', 'exe', 'scr', 'dll', 'msi', 'vbs', 'bat', 'com', 'pif', 'cmd', 'vxd', 'cpl' ) );

I can successfully upload .exe file by the old page special:upload, but by the new special:uploadwizard I can't. My wiki shown me error about restricted file extension .exe.

If I uncomment string with $wgFileExtensions, then all will be fine and .exe file will be uploaded. So it's a problem or by design that extension ignored $wgFileBlacklist = array_diff ?

UW stuck on "Uploading...", never returns edit

I'm having a problem with UploadWizard and I can't figure out what's wrong. UW used to work gloriously, but then it just stopped.

When I upload a file, the thumbnail displays well. Then it just displays the "Uploading..." status and it never proceeds. The file appears in the stash, but never as an actual file.

I've tried: - removing stash files - trying different file formats - different users - new files, old files.

I enabled various debugging and am posting the log below. The error most concerning is:

Class PEAR_Error not found; skipped loading

Any ideas?

The extensions javascript assumes that another extension is active that is not active by default, so you need to enable Extension:TitleBlacklist to get it to work.

Incorrect documentation regarding configuration arguments edit

Adding the following variable of 'skipTutorial' to LocalSettings.php does not actually skip the tutorial. This is per the documentation.

$wgUploadWizardConfig = array(
        'skipTutorial' => true

Modifying UploadWizard.config.php directly (which is bad) on line 106 ('skip' => true,) does remove the tutorial.

It appears that the method to configure settings is different in the actual code and inconsistent with the documentation. Can anyone clarify or help provide the correct syntax to set options?

Hello IsraelDefenseForces. It is best to put new questions on the bottom of the page. On your question, you are basically telling everyone that you are not able to get it to work on MW 1.21. There are a lot of set-up possibilities with this extension you should at least let everyone know how you configured the extension. Did you test this on a clean MW install with only this extension activated? A small note, your username seems a little odd to me. Are you suggesting the Israeli defense forces are using MediaWiki now? :) --Jongfeli (talk) 11:57, 1 November 2013 (UTC)Reply

Hi Jongfeli, thanks for the answer. I tried disabling all the others extension I have and it still doesn't work. I tried setting up a clean MW to test and it didn't work either.
Concerning the extension, I just downloaded it, put the folder UploadWizard in extensions and added these following lines in Localsettings :
$wgEnableUploads = true;
$wgGenerateThumbnailOnParse = true;
$wgUseImageMagick = true;
$wgImageMagickConvertCommand = "/usr/bin/convert";
$wgApiFrameOptions = 'SAMEORIGIN';
require_once( "$IP/extensions/UploadWizard/UploadWizard.php" );

I've read in the discussion page that other users report the same problem but no solution has been found yet! If you can help me, thank you. NB : concerning the nickname I wasn't very imaginative so I took the first thing I saw in my browser ;)

Thanks! User:IsraelDefenseForces

I tried this on a clean MW-1.21.1 and downloaded the latest code from here for UploadWizard. The only extension active is UploadWizard and it works just fine. In your set-up you use $wgImageMagickConvertCommand = "/usr/bin/convert"; this means you are running your wiki on a Linux server? Are you using an ancient browser?
If you are stuck create a new Wiki (when possible) on which you can upload images $wgEnableUploads = true;, don't use ImageUpload yet. See if uploading images is working fine with the default interface from MediaWiki. Then enable UploadWizard without the extra configuration settings just require_once( "$IP/extensions/UploadWizard/UploadWizard.php" ); and see what happens. --Jongfeli (talk) 07:13, 5 November 2013 (UTC)Reply
Same problem here. 12:05, 10 April 2014 (UTC)Reply
I was able to resolve this by disabling the Vector extension that I had carried over to MW 1.22 during an upgrade from a MW 1.18 installation.

Problem with UploadWizard regarding file extensions. edit

Since I upgraded to MW 1.21 I have a problem with UW (UploadWizard) regarding file extensions.

For instance, I try to upload a .ogg file, UW says that files with file extension .ogg is not allowed. When I try it on the normal upload, the file uploads. This UW problem happens with all allowed file extensions.

I also have the following MediaWiki extensions: TitleBlacklist, UploadBlacklist. (might not be helpful)

-- 23:02, 28 November 2013 (UTC)Reply

  • I had the same issue. For me, it was caused by $wgFileExtensions being under the require_once("$IP/extensions/UploadWizard/UploadWizard.php'); in my LocalSettings.php. I moved it above the UploadWizard and it fixed the problem. If anyone can confirm that this is necessary, it should be added to the instructions/requirements. --MikeDarling (talk) 19:34, 19 January 2015 (UTC)Reply

derivative works edit

It would be great if the uploadwizard form had some field to precise individually that the picture is some derivative work and give some links to the original files if it is on the same server. For example see BS icons on commons.wikimedia.--Akiry (talk) 13:32, 1 December 2013 (UTC)Reply

Campaign special page bug edit

UploadWizard v1.3, displays special page "<campaigns>". Clicking this special page link, leads to the following error:

Flickr Upload stuck edit

Namespace Campaign – Does it have to be configured additionally? edit

We have UW 1.3 running and the Namespace “Campaign” or “Campaign Talk” does not show up when searching the wiki. So I wonder if it has to be defined? Somehow like this:

define('NS_CAMPAIGN', 460);// 460 it is in https://commons.wikimedia.org
define('NS_CAMPAIGN_TALK', 461);// 461 it is in https://commons.wikimedia.org
if( $wgDBname == "my-special-wiki" ) {
  $wgExtraNamespaces = array(
    NS_INTERNAL      => "Campaign",
    NS_INTERNAL_TALK => "Campaign Talk"

Or how does the namespace “Campaign” or “Campaign Talk” gets activated or to be able to search it? --Andreas P.   13:39, 13 May 2014 (UTC)Reply

api-error-internal_api_error-DBQueryError edit


I am having the following error (api-error-internal_api_error_DBQueryError) randomly on uploaded files. It has the following consequences:

Do uploads to my wiki go to WikiMedia Commons as well? edit

Ok, I managed to set up an account. I am the original poster of this question.

I created a wiki using mediawiki on my personal web site, and added the UploadWizard extension.

When I use it, it works fine, and it uploads fifty files at a time efficiently. Well done!

But UploadWizard gives the impression, in the way it demands licensing information and the way it thanks me and suggests my files may be used elsewhere, that I am uploading not only to my site, but to Wikipedia Commons.

There is no clear warning that this is the case, and I have been assuming that the messages relate to UploadWizard use by Wikipedia, and this text does not apply if I run the UploadWizard php code on my own mediawiki.

However I would like to have this comfortable assumption confirmed. I tried reading the php but I couldn't be sure. Do the files appear only on my site, or are they uploaded elsewhere as well?

It's a nice piece of coding, but it needs to have its messages changed when it's used on a private wiki. Unless the deal is that there is no such thing as a private wiki, and anything at all I publish using mediawiki is somehow considered free for all. I haven't seen any indication that this is the case, but I'm a little concerned because of the confusing messages.

USA and Commons edit

I'm trying to set this extension up on my wiki, and I'm running into two problems:

  1. The upload tutorial names the site as "Wikimedia Commons".
  2. The rights screen uses the correct wiki name but states that it is in the USA (our wiki is located in Canada).

Is it possible to fix this? 23:36, 11 June 2015 (UTC)Reply

To skip the tutorial, add this to your LocalSettings.php: $wgUploadWizardConfig = array('tutorial' => array('skip' => true)); As for the wording of the rights screen, I'm not sure. I get the impression that this extension is being developed by the WMF for the WMF, and without too much attention to installations out in the wild. I'm sure that'll change though! :) Sam Wilson 22:05, 15 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

JSON error edit

When I try to add a Campaign I get the following error: Fatal error: Call to a member function getJsonData() on a non-object in /path/w/extensions/UploadWizard/includes/UploadWizardCampaign.php on line 76

I also can't upload pictures (I click the button to get to the last stage after entering file name and source, and nothing happens).

I've run update.php and enabled it in the config file. Any ideas?

Files created from links do not keep link names edit

When clicking on a link to create a file upload, the URL shows "Special:UploadWizard?wpDestFile=Testme.xls" where Testme.xls is the name of the link.

When getting to the Description page though, the Destination File name is completely ignored and the Wizard defaults to the original name of the file that is being uploaded.

This is non-standard for how the regular upload function works for wiki.

TypeError: mw.UploadWizard.config.licenses[defaultLicense] is undefined edit

Trying to disable the need to choose a license. Therefore I have this array in LocalSettings.php as found on https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/diffusion/EUWI/browse/master/README

$wgUploadWizardConfig = array(
    'licensing' => array(

                'template' => 'licensing', // this adds a link to Template:Licensing to the file info page
                'licenses' => array(


Unfortunately this leeds to the console-error mentioned in the headline of this post. Anybody an idea, how to do this correctly? Or is there an easier way to disable choosing a license (and take a default one instead?

How to make UploadWizard work properly on a customized skin? edit


I am working on an internal wiki built on top of MediaWiki. We have a customized skin to fit in our intranet. And we try to implement the UploadWizard on our internal wiki.

It is installed successfully and working fine on Vector skin. But it does not work on our customized skin.

Is there any special requirement to make UploadWizard to work on a customized skin?



Update the Templates section on the UploadWizard page edit

I tried the suggested way to Import the Wikimedia Commons Information Template and ended up with 60+ templates and the end result was barely any useful info on the file pages after uploading.

I noticed that the instructions on the MultimediaViewer extension page pointed to a different Information template to import (although it was on-page XML which may pose a risk). This one was much simpler and worked with no problems. Does anyone think it would be good to update the instructions on this Extension's page as well? --Potrod (talk) 02:21, 4 June 2016 (UTC)Reply

Wizard stop after "Release rights" edit

I'm installing UploadWizard to my MediaWiki 1.27 on Ubuntu 16.04LTS.

For first two steps, it seems like working fine.

But after step "Release rights", the Wizard just stop.

It won't jump to step "Describe", and nothing happened.

After all, nothing is uploaded successfully.

I try all 3 options in "Release rights", the result never changed.

Missing extension.json in REL1_26 edit

Why is the branch for mediawiki 1.26 missing the extension.json? It can't even run without the file. UploadWizard won't run with the latest extension.json.

Stops at DESCRIBE edit

While it was working previously, after some MediaWiki and/or UploadWizard update, it stopped working. Eventually, I got around to reinstalling the extension and it started working to a point. Now, I can select and upload the files, set my rights, and when I click next it goes to the Describe page. I have the header and the next button, but I have no pics or the form that I fill out for each image. It's just the header and the button that doesn't do anything. What went wrong and more importantly, how do I get it to start working again?

File description language problem edit

After a fresh install of the plugin (first time installing), I tested if everything was working. But there is a problem with the language listing. Everything is fine (in Dutch) except for the Description field. For some reason this is set by default to Japanese (日本語). Even when hard resetting the languages to nl and en:

$wgUploadWizardConfig = array(
        'debug' => false,
        'uwLanguages' => array(
                'nl' => 'Nederlands',
                'en' => 'English'
                ), // Selectable languages for file descriptions - defaults to 'en'

It will still show up in the list.

Changing alternatives at "Use different license" edit

In the "Release rights" step, when choosing "This file is my own work" and then "Use different license", the last option reads "I have reviewed the disclaimer for this wiki and to my best knowledge this work is not under data protection levels exceeding those of this wiki." which is not an actual license.

Unknown error: "writeapidenied" edit

In a Mediawiki 1.28 the Upload Wizard for Mediawiki 1.27 is installed (since there is no UploadWizard for Mediawiki 1.28). When trying to upload a file the screen always says: Unknown error: "writeapidenied".

I tried installing the version of UploadWizard for Mediawiki 1.29 - it says the same.

I alos tried installing the versions of UploadWizard für Mediawiki 1.30 and 1.31, but they give a message like [3c46dc426590d0e28116d395] 2018-08-21 16:03:38: Fatal exception of type "Error"

The most current snapshot will even result in a blank page with the Mediawiki no more reacting at all.

What exactly is the problem here? Does someone know the solution for the "Unknown error: "writeapidenied"?

Try adjusting your user permissions. Try removing any custom user permissions, just as a test so see if that helps. HSRobinson (talk) 17:10, 23 August 2018 (UTC)Reply
Thank you very much! I finally found the problem - it was simply the respective Mediawiki user needed the "writeapi" permission. For example:
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['writeapi'] = true;

Is there a way to use imageMagic to scale down the images? --Jamiehutber (talk) 16:51, 12 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

How to translate NS_CAMPAIGN to a local language (French, German, Italian and so on)? edit


how is it possible to properly translate the NS_CAMPAIGN ? If I load the extension via wfLoadExtension( 'UploadWizard' ); I guess it gets the NS_CAMPAIGN definition from extension.json, right? I want to translate it to French, German, Italian and so on. How can I do this the right way? Thank you --Andreas P.   09:21, 11 April 2019 (UTC)Reply

The custom MediaWiki:mwe-upwiz-license doesn't display edit

I have a problem, I've edited $wgUploadWizardConfig for to add new choices of licenses. But in the UploadWizard, when I am going to choose a custom license, the text shows something like this ⧼mwe-upwiz-license-wikimedia⧽ and the message MediaWiki that I'd created don't display.

For example, I've added this to $wgUploadWizardConfig:

        'licenses' => array(
		'wikimedia' => array(
			'msg' => 'mwe-upwiz-license-wikimedia',
			'templates' => array( 'Wikimedia' )
		'other-wiki' => array(
			'msg' => 'mwe-upwiz-license-other-wiki',
			'templates' => array( 'Other wiki' )
        'licensing' => array(
        'ownWork' => array(
            'type' => 'or',
            'defaults' => 'cc-by-sa',
			'licenses' => array(
		'thirdParty' => array(
			'type' => 'or',
			'defaults' => 'none',
                        'template' => 'self', // this adds a link to Template:Licensing to the file info page
                        'licenseGroups' => array(
					'head' => 'mwe-upwiz-license-wiki-head',
					'licenses' => array(

In UploadWizard, the text is shown like this:


  • ⧼mwe-upwiz-license-wikimedia⧽
  • ⧼mwe-upwiz-license-other-wiki⧽

Upload duplicates edit

It would be great to be able to upload duplicates of an image, for example if there was some editing. It's good to be warned before, but then UploadWizard should accept the new version for an upload.

I believe you should use the alternative classic process via "Special:Upload" for this. For this extension this is proabably out of scope for a reason. --[[kgh]] (talk) 13:32, 3 July 2019 (UTC)Reply

replace information template with custom template edit

Hi, is there a way to replace the default information template with my own? My site already has a template for photos I need to use. Even if it means some simple alteration to the source code, I could work with that.

It appears to me that the name information for the template is hard-coded. Thus this is a feature request. If you do not have a template information on your wiki you could either rename your template to information or just create a redirect from Template:Information to Template:Photo. --[[kgh]] (talk) 13:41, 3 July 2019 (UTC)Reply
