Support » Localhost Installs » Can’t upload file to library XAMPP/Windows

  • blendergasket


    Hi! I haven’t worked with wordpress for a year or two and am now just coming back to it. I am helping someone with a site, and got it set up locally on XAMPP. For some reason though, I cannot add photos through the media library.

    I upload the picture and don’t get any error message, but the thumbnail is blank. I view source on the thumbnail and the URL points to the year/month folder structure. I checked this month folder, and it is empty. It seems like a permissions issue. I tried to make sure no files in the site were read only (the read only attribute had a square in it, which I unchecked and saved) and it still didn’t work.

    Strangely, the image does show when I click the edit image link. That image URL loads from the following location: src=”/[SITE]/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=imgedit-preview&_ajax_nonce=70a5438d9f&postid=534&rand=49519″

    Has anyone had this issue and would you be willing to let me know if you have any advise for me in troubleshooting this matter? Thank you!

    you need enable in php.ini ; or ;extension=php_fileinfo.dll



    Thank you for your response, I just checked my php.ini file and saw that it contains an uncommented “extension=php_fileinfo.dll”. It does not contain “”” at all.

    Hey Im Chris Brown luckily I found your query. We got same issue while working on wordpress. I dont need to post question here. I will just follow your post and check valuable responses.
