If you attempt to add an image thumbnail to the mediawiki, it fails with an out of memory error. The solution seems to be presented here: (A simple 1 line change)

I love it when I answer my own questions only seconds after posting for support and hours after trying everything. All I had to do was use GD which was done by setting $wgUseImageMagick = false; in my LocalSettings.php file.
