Docker: cannot access static resources under /w/extensions or /w/skins
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story PointsBUG REPORT

Description

List of steps to reproduce (step by step, including full links if applicable):

What happens?:

  • HTTP 403 errors on any resource under /w/extensions or /w/skins
  • This applies to things like icons, as well as ULS IME js files, web fonts and anything else not served through the PHP endpoints

What should have happened instead?:

  • Resources get served

What works

  • Cloning the extension repos directly into the extensions sub directory of the mediawiki repo rather than symlinking
  • mount --bind the extension and skin directories directly into the mediawiki repo:
    • mount --bind /path/to/mw-extensions /path/to/mediawiki/extensions

It's possible Docker just isn't compatible with the symlink method, but if it is, it should either work out-of-the-box, or DEVELOPERS.md should explain what you need to do to make it work. If it is not, the canonical way to "mount" extensions should be detailed in DEVELOPERS.md instead.
