Please note:The SCons wiki is now restored from the attack in March 2013. All old passwords have been invalidated. Please reset your password if you have an account. If you note missing pages, please report them to Also, new account creation is currently disabled due to an ongoing spam flood (2013/08/27).

File Attachments Configuration

The AttachFile action enables a page to have multiple attached files. Since file uploads could be abused for DoS (Denial of Service) attacks, AttachFile is an action that may be disabled by the wiki administrator (by adding actions_excluded = ['AttachFile'] to wikiconfig).

This is all you usually need to do for configuration.

How attachments are handled

Attachments are stored "privately" in the data/pages/ directory (with paths like data/pages/<pagename>/attachments/<filename>) and can only be retrieved by using the AttachFile action (via URLs like<SomePage>?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=filename.ext).

/!\ The direct serving method (deprecated since long) was finally removed in moin 1.7.0. If you have used it until now (attachments = {...}), please copy your attachments into your data directory (and make sure they arrive at the right location there).
