How to Enable Uploads to Wikimedia

This document will demonstrate how to enable file uploading on a Wiki page hosted in cPanel.

From the Wikimedia Help documentation I was able to find the step by step version of this video: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:FAQ#How_do_I_enable_uploading.3F 

Start out by logging into the cPanel, and select File Manager

Go to the public_html directory

Find the images folder, and change the permissions so that they are "editable" by the Group and World. The Permissions number should be 777

Find the LocalSettings.php file and edit it. 

Search for this (either (Windows) Control + F, or (Apple) Command + F) "$wgEnableUploads." It is set to false automatically, so change the word false to "true" and will end up looking like this: "$wgEnableUploads = true; "
