Hi! Finally InstantCommons is working in my wiki again. I don't know exactly what caused the error but after updating form PHP5 to PHP7 and following instructions here it is working again. Thanks to all who had helped me!

How do I check the http log channel?

I was looking for help in this topic about year ago because instantcommons stopped working in my wiki after switch to HTTPS. I was unable to detect the reason and solve this issue and there wasn't much time after that to deal with it more profoundly. About week ago I found out that the new LTS release 1.27 has come out and there were info that was big relief for me:

I'll just upload the correct files then:

I saved HttpFunctions.php and ForeignAPIRepo.php as text files to my computer, then copied content from these files and replaced content in server files.

Which is the easiest way to restore the files includes/HttpFunctions.php and includes/filerepo/ForeignAPIRepo.php to their original version if I don't have backup of them?

Mediawiki was installed by extracting tar file, following these instructions found here: https://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-mediawiki-on-ubuntu-14.04

  1. Do I run it via command line? git fetch https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/core refs/changes/18/223518/4 && git cherry-pick FETCH_HEAD
  2. In which directory I should run it?
  3. This $wgDebugLogGroups['http'] = <some custom log file> goes to LocalSettings.php?

I tried several maintenance scripts (purgeList, checkImages, rebuildImages etc.) but none of them helped. It's getting quite annoying already...

I have tried purging but with no success. Can turning ImageMagick on/off affect this issue? I will try some maintenance scripts next week.

Should the open_basedir be enabled then? What directory I should set to open_basedir?

In both php.ini files the ";open_basedir= " (blank). Is it okay? Is this string set anywhere else too in addition to these two php.ini-s?

Still nothing ... Any further recommendations??

Make sure you have logging enabled then grep for ForeignAPIRepo: ERROR on GET:.

I downloaded 2 php.ini files via FileZilla from directories /etc/php5/apache2/ and /etc/php5/cli/.

Hello to everyone! This is my first post here. I am an administrator of one wikiproject. I had set InstantCommons true in Localsettings.php and my wiki was showing Commons files correctly. After this http to https change InstantCommons is not working in my wiki anymore. Only red links of images are shown. I have searched for solutions and tried to solve this problem but still unsuccessfully. I have read this topic several times but mostly I can't understand what you are talking about. I have Ubuntu 14.04.2, PHP 5.5.9, Mediawiki 1.23.3 versions, SSH access via command line and FileZilla.
