Sometimes when trying to upload an image, MediaWiki returns an error saying that the file being uploaded appears to be empty.

Trying to manually upload the same file works, so the problem does not seem to be in the file.

This problem is intermittent.

    It seems that when this happens, the file path was never entered into the appropriate fields, and the form was submitted with empty fields.

    the solution for this Problem:
    u only can use regular expression for the articlename. Cause the article name is used as filename for the images when they are uploaded. So dont use any brackets etc...

    If there is a problem with some characters in the file name, we should open it as a separate bug.

    The case I'm describing does not have such characters. And uploading it again sometimes work, without changing any configuration.

    Maybe it is time-related. The script could be sending the key presses before the browser form is ready to accept them.
