Create cross-domain MediaWiki-Vagrant role
Open, LowPublic


Large MediaWiki setups use separate domains for uploads, while the default vagrant installation just serves them from the main domain. The difference can be quite significant for certain features since browsers use a same-origin security model.

Create a vagrant role which configures upload domains and sets CORS headers in a manner similar to Wikipedia.

As a workaround, the commons role can be used for cross-domain upload testing.

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!

For tips how to manage individual work in Phabricator (noisy notifications, lists of task, etc.), see for available options.
(For the records, two emails were sent to assignee addresses before resetting assignees. See T228575 for more info and for potential feedback. Thanks!)

We don't serve assets from a separate domain anymore. A shared upload domain would be still useful though.
