Can't revert to previous version of a big file (Unexpected value: ‘oldimage’=‘’) - server side upload issue?
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

There seems to be a problem with reverting to previous versions of particularly big files; the one I encounter is with a 2.35 GiB Ogv file: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Vladimir_Putin%27s_press_conference_on_2012-12-20.ogv

After clicking on the 'revert' link in the file history box, I'm getting the following error message...

Internal error
Unexpected value: ‘oldimage’=‘’.
Return to Main Page.

... and nothing happens, I still cannot revert to the previous version of the file.


Version: 1.22.0
Severity: major

This could be caused by the method of upload (server side upload). I remember so. said those files had wrong "permission"... I can't find the cite, so sorry for the inaccuracy.

The file in question has been re-uploaded server-side in the meantime, and since there hasn't been any action whatsoever from the WMF on it, I'm closing this bug as RESOLVED INVALID.
