In order to save files directly in the wiki, just add a link with the content file:yourfile to a page (as for other links, between curly double brackets).
[[file:oacs-dotlrn-vienna-xowiki.pdf|XoWiki Slides from the Vienna OpenACS conference]]
When the file link is added, and the file does not exist, the wiki marks the link with a handle to upload the file. According to the current policies, everybody who is logged-in has sufficient permissions is allowed to edit pages..

We recommend these resources:
Content Security Policies (CSP)
OpenACS supports CSP starting with version 5.9.1.
