en.wikipedia not working #244

I used the download central to download the premade English Wikipedia - Images (2018-07) [107.35 GB]. After the download I closed and reopened XOWA and en.wikipedia showed up under the wikis. However when I clicked on it it said "could not find page in wiki:". I thought maybe I only downloaded the images and not the text or something so then I downloaded English Wikipedia - Wikitext (2018-07) [22.96 GB] and did the same thing. It downloaded to the same folder as the first download however I got the same error.

Someone please help.

You actually only need to download
English Wikipedia - Images (2018-07) [107.35 GB]
English Wikipedia - Articles (2018-07) [62.74 GB]

That's atleast what I did, and everything is fine. So I guess you're missing "English Wikipedia - Articles (2018-07) [62.74 GB]"?

Thanks @Ope30 !

I think @Ope30 is correct. You can also try downloading the files manually as described here: #240
