Description Ruben Cheng 2006-03-05 21:44:01 UTC

I was having a lot of trouble to setup two wiki project using a shared image
folder. After testing, and thanks to the debug output, I noticed there are two
SQL request for the image, the first one is to the table "en_image", and the
seconds is to "image". It seems that $wgUseSharedUploads is working ok, but
there is a very interesting diferente. The filename in the second query had the
first letter capitalized. I was using $wgCapitalLinks=false.

I think that the module that query for the image (I don't know which one), is
not checking the $wgCapitalLinks in order to rewrite the query.

The workaround that I found, is to leave $wgCapitalLinks as default (true), and
upload the file again.

My setup is:

Both wiki is using database name, the first wiki (The main one) has no table
prefix, and the second one has "en_" prefix.

By the way, I think that I should be useful, that the upload have the option
make the destination to the shared upload folder.

Addressed with the initialCapital setting for foreign repos. Marked as fixed.
