File not getting imported using special:import from enwiki to orwiki
Closed, InvalidPublic


I am using Special:import feature to import one image from enwiki to orwiki. While importing all the data like descriptions, categories,templates are getting imported but the the file itself not transferring.

A new page is getting created on the same name on file namespace with no file. The page says "there is no file with such name and you can upload one".

Enwiki file:
orwiki file:

Similar stuff happened before as well by others.

Let me know if any more information needed.

Special:Export doesn't export files themselves, only their description pages. You have to manually download the file from the source wiki and upload it to the destination wiki.

What's the exact error you're getting? Can you attach a screenshot of it?

Well it was not an error but warning. It is fixed. Thanks for your comment.

No code changes involved hence nothing 'resolved'. :) Setting status back to 'invalid'. For future reference, please *always* include exact error messages. Thanks!
