mito or mtDNA is what is inherited from the mother. Y-DNA is what sons inherit from their father.
"mitoYDNA" is a new website started by a great team, including Wikitreers Mags Gaulden and Peter Roberts. It is separate from Wikitree.

Steve, are you having trouble uploading to mitoYDNA? Perhaps the question should be directed to the mitoYDNA Facebook group. Are you a member?

The following is the WikiTree Help Page links are specific to your question....

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:DNA

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:How_to_Get_Started_with_DNA

... But in short, you don't just simply upload it to WikiTree itself as WikiTree utilizes a (trusted) 3rd party that links the applicable DNA information via the following GEDmatch link (registration there is required and its Free).

http://v2.gedmatch.com/login1.php:

You then just follow their instructions to upload your DNA file and then you just have to add your GEDmatch ID info within the WikiTree DNA Tests page to link them.

Issues regarding GedMatch is not managed by WikiTree, but GedMatch themselves.

If the above links nor GedMatch is helpful at all, the following answer provided within a similar/same question (asked within the WikiTree G2G forum) is probably your best bet to figure out what's going on.

I do wish you the best of luck! :-)
