[resolved] HTTP error with flash-based image uploads (50 posts)

    My issue solved by hosting provider. Not sure what they did though - think permissions on the gallery. Have tested this further on a 2nd hosting service (Bluehost) and it worked fine.

    Apparently one known bug/limitation (perhaps relevant to some posts in this thread) - flash upload does not work for a user who is not an administrator, workaround is to use the zip file upload.

    iwassertein, I am hosting through blue host and have the same problem even though I am an admisnistrator I can't upload, do you know what they changed so flash uploader would work?

    Thanks

    Not sure, think it was the permissions on the gallery folder

    My problem was that only admin can upload the files, other user's can't.
    I solved the problem with the same method that "simongreenland" described: with the "User role editor" by granting the "upload_files" and "unfiltered_upload" roles.

    I have had this issue, getting 'HTTP Error' (no number) when uploading files, since updating my plugins.

    I did the CHMOD fix (upload.php from 644 to 755) and it works now (seems to so far, have uploaded around 100 images now without the error), however my question is now, is there a security implication to this or should it be fine at 755?

    I do not have users on my site, it is display-only, so I'm not sure if the user role editor workaround would help me..

    Thanks guys.

    Spoke too soon, it was just a lucky lot of images that uploaded fine. Next lot of 10 crashed, hung for AGES on the second image then HTTP error. I left it to finish and some of the images worked and some didn't, so I re-uploaded the ones that didn't with the regular non-flash uploader and they worked.

    So in summary I have current version of WP and plugin, no users on the site, only admin makes posts and posts images. HTTP error occurs at a rough guess on around 30% of the uploads, but the uploading will finish if I leave it long enough and some images will have been uploaded while others don't.

    I've been trying to fix this for days, to no avail. I'm really hoping a nextgen fix is coming soon.

    A note - in tinkering with my plugins, I found that removing "Contact Form 7" made it possible to upload things by flash again, no idea why this should be, but disabling the plugin should fix your uploads

    We also use Nextgen with Contact Form 7, and are not be able to upload images using flash... disable the plugin and it works fine !!!
    seems like the latest version from "Contact Form 7" create the problem???
    For about 1 week ago we have NO problem with this combination/setup.
    "xxxevilgrinxxx" thanks for this tip !!!

    I also have this problem (ERROR HTTP error. : HTTP Error. occuring when trying to upload images to the NextGen gallery) and it seems to have broken the moment I updated Contact Form 7. Temporarily disabling the Contact Form 7 plugin allows me to upload without any problems - so it definitely seems to be that plugin in my case - thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

    Let's hope they put out a fix for this - both those plugins are very popular so surely it's affecting a lot of people.

    I found this on another topic:
    Contact Form 7 breaks Nextgen Gallery Flash Upload

    This will do the trick !!!

    Thank you for the quick reply, I've updated the issue in the NextGen file: ngg-config.php

    from:

    require_once( WP_LOAD_PATH . 'wp-load.php');

    to:

    require_once( WP_LOAD_PATH . 'wp-admin/admin.php');

    I can now upload photos in NextGen without seeing any error message from Contact Form 7.

    Simple but very affective, why?? don`t know but it works perfect now!
    regards, Hans
    Thanks to Daniel Payne for this solution!

    wow ... thank you for the fix suggestion! I have been fighting with this for a few weeks and was about to pull my hair out! I used CF7 and NextGEN on many sites I build. This last one has about 150 images for the gallery and I was DREADING uploading each one individually.

    I concur with QuestionFox's statement "Let's hope they put out a fix for this - both those plugins are very popular so surely it's affecting a lot of people"!

    Tank you very much defke110.
    We only lost the time to read this topic.
    We tried disabling Contact-form 7 and worked.
    Tried with software change as you suggested, after reactivatin CF 7, and it worked.

    FWIW, the NextGen gallery plug in has been bought by a company called Photocrati. Just announced on the NextGen website a few days ago. Big things seem to be coming, and that includes a fix for this. Which is good because it worked fine for me once my host fixed it (not knowing about the CF7 conflict) and now, unless I disable CF7 NONE of my photos will upload; before it was just a handful.

    Hopefully there will be plug in updates soon!

    How do you test the member gallery upload if your site is live but no members yet ?

    Same here. Disabling the Flash uploader works, but then only one image per upload is possible (queing is possible, but tedious).

    Hi there, I´m having the same problems and the contact-form deactivating-things doesn´t seem to work for me. Any other ideas? I can upload single pics when deactivation the flash uploader - but this will drive me crazy. And the uploading bar stays at level 0%...
