Bizagi Modeler does not upload images into wiki

Hi,

I'm using Bizagi Modeler version 2.5.1.1. I've tried on both Windows XP (32bits) and Windows 7 (64bits).

I've tried with MediaWiki 1.18.1 and PHP 5.3.1 (officially supported), and with MediaWiki 1.21 and PHP 5.4.7 (last stable version on both OS).

I've setup all right imaginable to be able to upload images from Bizagi :

- setting $wgGroupPermissions, $wgFileExtensions, $wgEnableUploads as explained both in Bizagi previous answers and from MediaWiki website.

- checking access on directories (both on php and mediawiki)

I have traces of Apache and PHP, and I'v seen only publication of main page (html page) but never ever any images were published.

I've tried of course to publish images by hand (using the very same user than in Bizagi, which in fact is administrator, so no right issues). To do that, I first publish the html web site from Bizagi, then manually I published all the images one by one, selecting in the wiki document the reference and updating it with the right picture from the web site repository. But all the operation is manual.

What is surprizing me the most, is that the Apache log shows no try at all from Bizagi to publish any image.

I have noticed also that Bizagi is trying to use the very very old way (query.php) which gives an error, then Bizagi is using api.php which is the current way to do it. All calls to api.php concern only items with format=xml and titles="the final page generated by Bizagi"

So my question is :

Why Bizagi does not published any images, while there is no issue on right access and even using the "supported versions" ?

Considering manual operation is not a clean solution since any update of the graphics must be done manually (and therefore needing to keep a clean trace of what was updated or not), I would really appreciate that this is fixed within Bizagi directly.

Can you give me some advices ?

Best regards,

Frederic

However there is another issue now on PDF and Word publishing. I will open a new ticket for that...
