WP 3.7.1 Media Upload - Http error (2 posts)

    Trying to upload using either of the media file uploaders and I'm getting either "500 Internal Server Error" or "HTTP error"

    Works fine on some websites but not other another.

    Looked around various forums and some are suggesting that it's the hosting platform that may be the issue. Others suggest the .htaccess file.
    Tried all of the suggestions for the .htaccess file to not avail.

    Not sure what to ask my hosts ?

    my .htaccess file currently looks like this

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    <IfModule mod_security.c="">
    <Files upload.php="">
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    # END WordPress

    These kinds of issues are commonly caused by over-restrictive settings for the server's mod_security module. Try asking your hosts about this.
