PDF Upload / HTTP Error to Media Library (5 posts)

    Hi -- I have a 53.6 KB pdf that I want to upload to my WP Media library but every time I try, I get a HTTP error

    There seems to be a work around by putting some code in the htaccess file but when I tried that and deactivated all of my plugins, I still wasn't able to upload the pdf

    any suggestions on what might be happening?

    This only happened with the PDF -- I tried with a 16 KB jpg and had no problems

    I get a 404: oops, this page couldn't be found

    I get a http error.

    Waiting for some help as well.

    Thank you in advance!

    frustrating isn't it....

    I did ftp it and linked that way but seems like the media upload should work
