Detailed Description

Image authorisation script.

To use this, see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Image_Authorization

  • Set $wgUploadDirectory to a non-public directory (not web accessible)
  • Set $wgUploadPath to point to this file

Optional Parameters

  • Set $wgImgAuthDetails = true if you want the reason the access was denied messages to be displayed instead of just the 403 error (doesn't work on IE anyway), otherwise it will only appear in error logs
  • Set $wgImgAuthPublicTest false if you don't want to just check and see if all are public must be set to false if using specific restrictions such as LockDown or NSFileRepo

    For security reasons, you usually don't want your user to know why access was denied, just that it was. If you want to change this, you can set $wgImgAuthDetails to 'true' in localsettings.php and it will give the user the reason why access was denied.

Your server needs to support PATH_INFO; CGI-based configurations usually don't.
