    Cannot delete an uploaded file

    Given a file I uploaded that I want to delete; When I'm doing so I'm getting the following error:

    Error deleting file: Invitee.png
    
    Error deleting file: Could not create directory "mwstore://local-backend/local-deleted/l/9/1".

    How about all the subdirectories? In such cases it needs to write into images/deleted/ and/or images/archive/. Those folder are not used on the initial upload.

    The sub-path l/9/1 looks odd. I'd have expected something like 4/47. Can you please set

    $wgDebugLogFile = "$IP/cache/debug.php";
    

    in your LocalSettings.php file and retry. Afterwards we should see more details on the log file.

    Can you confirm the webserver user is allowed to write into the images/ directory of the wiki instance?

    Yes I confirme because I was able to upload the image in the first place.

    This sounds like a file system permission error. Can you confirm the webserver user is allowed to write into the images/ directory of the wiki instance?
