Description Florian Dufour 2008-05-22 07:17:11 UTC

I'm using Mediawiki 1.12.0. In LocalSettings.php, I set $wgCheckFileExtensions to false and I didn't update $wgFileExtensions (using default parameters).

However, even with $wgCheckFileExtensions set to false, I'm not able to upload a PDF file (for example). Of course, if I add 'pdf' on $wgFileExtensions array, it works as expected.

What I would expect : when $wgCheckFileExtensions is set to false, no extension checking should take place.

This bug is also described in the manual page ( but doesn't seem to be filed in Bugzilla.

* Special:Version 

  MediaWiki   1.12.0 (r32735)
  PHP         5.2.6-pl1-gentoo (apache2handler)
  MySQL       5.0.54


Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-05-22 18:35:30 UTC
Fixed in r35195

The final upload check was checking $wgStrictFileExtensions only, which shouldn't apply when $wgCheckFileExtensions is disabled.
