Trying to publish an uploaded file on WM Commons returns "Internal error: Server failed to publish temporary file"
Closed, DuplicatePublic


I was trying publish a large webm video file I uploaded there. If the filesize is a problem it should probably downrender the video or at least display an error message that asks for a smaller sized version or higher upload-speeds.

How can this problem be solved? The message displays after loads for minutes saying "Publishing..." I already tried the "Retry failed uploads" button many times as well as uploading the file anew.

What is the exact file size? Please also see and follow the scheme on - thanks.

Not sure if the filesize is the reason then (reminded me of T77820 or T37916)

This seems to be related: T279407
Do I need to rerender to be able to upload it? I'm asking because the rendering (with Kdenlive) takes a lot of time and in that case the error-message should say so.

I rendered a smaller version and the upload went through. I think that it was caused by the filesize. Please fix the error-message and please consider raising the filesize-limit.

When I try to upload the larger version of the video by going to "Upload a new version of this file" I get the error-message "This file is bigger than the server is configured to allow." right after selecting the file with the filepicker of "Source file". Please comment if a larger filesize gets enabled.
