From the MediaWiki documentation:

By default anonymous uploads are not allowed. You must register and logon before the upload file option appears in the toolbox.

And then from configuring uploads:

Is there a way to allow users to upload files without logging in?

That'd be a great help for corporate environments where only a limited number of people can access the wiki (server) anyway...

Edit SpecialUpload.php file in the includes folder Comment out the following two lines:

 $wgOut->errorPage( 'uploadnologin', 'uploadnologintext' );
 return;

Now users will not have to login to reach the upload form. Simpler method, modify LocalSettings.php:

$wgEnableUploads       = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['upload'] = true;
