Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: When I try to upload a file, my Browser always tell me <uploaddisabled>. What is here to do?

A: Edit LocalSettings.php and uncomment the line which says "#wgDisableUploads = false;".

Q: How do I incorporate embedded images? I can't find anything on it.

A: You can incorporate an image using [[Image:Imagefilename]]

Q: How do you change the name of the site? I altered $wgSitename in the LocalSettings.php, but that didn't seem to change anything.

A: In my particular experience I had to reinstall MediaWiki overtop of the one with the bad Wiki name so that the change would be made in the Database itself. The wgSitename setting in LocalSettings doesn't change it in the actual database apparently :(

Q: Where can I learn how to modify a MediaWiki installation's appearance? i.e. Logos, navigation, tool box, etc.
