Image Uploader problem in 2.5beta? (44 posts)

    I downloaded and installed 2.5 a couple days ago and noticed a problem with the image uploader freezing when I'm trying to upload images from my computer. See here. As a rule I turn off the visual editor, and tried uploading with it both on and off with no luck. I even upgraded to the latest beta release (3/12/08) and still can't seem to get the images up.

    I haven't been able to find any mention of this anywhere so I'm just wondering if anyone has come up against this and how did you fix it?

    I'm glad someone else is bumping this. I too just upgraded to RC1 and am still experiencing this problem. I would love to upgrade my blogs to 2.5 but until this issue is resolved I can't.

    agreed I have tried everything on my end to make sure it wasn't some silly mistake but I can assure you it isn't. hopefully this is fixed soon so I too can upgrade my blogs.

    I think there may be more than one problem with uploading, which is causing some confusion.

    There's a definite problem with the new Flash uploader on Macs, which you'll only experience if your web host has the Apache mod_security module loaded (and I think a lot of hosts do). The problem is with the Mac Flash player sending the upload in a slightly incorrect format that mod_security doesn't like. Because it's a problem with Flash player it needs to be fixed by Adobe not WordPress.

    It is possible on some hosts to turn off mod_security for the wordpress file that processes the upload. If you're feeling technical there's more info on the WordPress bug tracker.

    I was wondering how soon or when I will be able to download patched version of beta 2.5? I was dumb enough to upgrade my production blog. Unfortunately, it uses images heavily. Presently, I have to go through the pain of uploading the images via ftp. One more reason to "think, the do things".

    PS: I noticed that there was some resolution in the bug tracker and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone involved. I'm still looking for the answer on the the question above :) Thank you, again.

    Hello,

    I just upgraded to the latest 2.5 RC1 from 2.3.3 and I also have this problem, I can't upload any images with the image uploader. The thing is I'm not using a mac. I run Firefox under Windows Vista.

    When I try to upload I get a HTTP error, and the Flash debugger gives me the following error:

    Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2038: File I/O Error.

    I hope you will be able to fix this. Thanks!

    I wasnt able to upload images on Ubuntu with FF2.

    However, I was able to upload images 1 by 1 on my Windows XP machine with IE7 (not with FF2). While sending the images into the post I noticed another issue:

    If I'm trying to post an uploaded image with the size of 610 by 380 in full size mode, uploader automatically adjusts the width property to 500.

    I'm with ya on the bump!

    I am using Linux and have this problem when using FF, but am able to upload when I use IE6 (thru wine). Haven't gone to a Windows machine to try yet.

    Initially I had the same problem, the uploader wouldn't work, however after changing permissions (775) the situation appeared to resolve itself.
    The directory wp-content/uploads was *not* auto created, but apart from that, I honestly can't say I observed the same symptoms as reported here. As far as I can see, ownership and permissions appeared to be the issues to resolve, and once that was done, everything else worked just fine.
    Environment: ubuntu 7.10/Firefox 2.x and uploading to WP hosted on Plesk 8.2 running over CentOS.

    Dogshit, I don't think that's the problem here. When I uploaded a picture for the first time (back in 2.x) I had also to make the uploads folder myself and give it the appropriate permissions and that was the solution. But this is clearly a bug in WP 2.5 disabling (some) people that use Firefox to upload files.

    I also don't think it just affects people with a mac, because I don't own a mac and it also doesn't work for me. Although it did work in IE7 in the end...

    I've tried it on both a XP machine and a mac, and both have the same problem in Firefox. When I disable the Flashplayer plugin the upload works without any errors.

    (Firefox 3.0 beta 4)

    I got a little excited when I read dogshit's post. I changed permissions and still no luck with Firefox.

    My installation shows the following issues related to posting images:
    - when I try to upload images in Firefox 2.0.0.12 and Opera 9.5 beta build 9841 I get "HTTP error";
    - when I try to upload images from Opera 9.26 they get on the server but I cannot edit their properties or post them. I only get the "Save changes" button and a thumbnail of the image;
    - the uploaded photos via Opera 9.26 can be posted only from Firefox 2.0 or Opera 9.5 beta but only sometimes the thumbnail is created.
    - the gallery doesn't work.

    Does anyone know if the file uploader will be IE7-enabled in 2.5 final?

    I get an error when its trying to compress the file. I think it could be something wrong with the ftp settings... not sure how to fix it though.

    This is still broken for me in WordPress 2.5 RC3, Windows XP, IE7.

    I *can* get it work in Firefox, but only because I don't have the flash plugin installed, and it looks like WordPress then defaults to the non-flash method.

    Weird, It seems that my image uploads are being uploaded, but I can't choose from them (or see any thumbnails) from the galleries in the flash media library and select them to be posted.

    This is somewhat of a dissapointment, I hope a very swift solution will be available for this problem, or I will go back to 2.3.

    (I run Vista and IE7 Downloaded the latest 2.5 version)

    I haven't done the upgrade yet myself, but I got a question from a friend who is having the same problem. He says:
    "I could upload my picture, but when I tried to insert it into the post I got a blank, white window.
    Luckily WP lets you go through the media library, get the URL for the pic,
    and let you paste that into the post. It's more cumbersome than the old
    way."

    So based on what avinews said, this problem seems to vary depending on different things (browser? my friend is using Firefox on XP).

    So...bump.

    I just installed wp 2.5 on a test database.

    But same problem here. I'm using XP with Opera 9.5 and also tested IE.
    The first thing: I can't choose more then one picture.
    If i start the upload i get this error message:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 9216 bytes) in /usr/export/www/hosting/******/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/image.php on line 138

    I also see the pictures at the Gallery tab, but i can't insert them to my blog...

    I hope we see a fix soon :)
