Image Upload HTTP Error Fix


This plugin is no longer being maintained. Use it at your own risk.

If your WordPress 2.5 installation shows an HTTP Error when uploading files using the media uploader, then this plugin should fix that problem. Simply upload and activate the plugin, then you’ll be able to upload files with no problem.

Technical details:

The plugin adds a few lines to WordPress’ .htaccess file which deactivates mod_security on the file which handles file uploads.


This plugin is for WordPress version 2.5 or later.

  1. Unzip the ZIP file and drop the folder straight into your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. That’s it! Try uploading a file and the HTTP error should be gone.
