I'm mostly a Wikimedia Commons contributor.

But in terms of development I work with Java, and have worked with PHP. I'm also keen on HTML5 and CSS3, and have some experience with JavaScript, jQuery, and occasionally MySQL.

Bobulous added a comment to T247454: 502 Server Hangup Error on esams for "Upload a new version of this file" on Special:Upload on Commons.

Spotted that the metadata included the name 'Flückiger" and that the umlaut was causing a character encoding problem in IPTC and EXIF metadata, so replaced that with an ASCII 'u' character, and reattempted upload. Still fails.

More info: the "Upload a new version of this file" page worked fine with a different image, of 15MiB in size. But immediately afterwards an attempt to upload the 36MiB file failed with the same old error. So I'm guessing it's one of these three causes:

Also, to rule out the web browser, I installed Midori and, using its default configuration, visited the "Upload a new version of this file" page and tried the same thing. This time the end result was that Midori reported that the Wikimedia Commons page could not be found. So again failure.

As an additional note: I resolved the "Request to access cookie or storage . . . was blocked" warning by turning off Enhanced Tracking Protections in Firefox, but exactly the same thing happens: several minutes pass before this "Wikimedia Error" page appears with "502, Server Hangup" failure.

Bobulous reopened T247454: 502 Server Hangup Error on esams for "Upload a new version of this file" on Special:Upload on Commons as "Open".

I'm also seeing the "Wikimedia Error" page every time I try to use the "Upload a new version of this file page". I've tried seven or eight times today, including a break of several hours, and still cannot get a 36MiB file to upload successfully.

I'm going to be making some of the changes suggested by this task today. Let me know if we're going to clash on anything.
