Support » Fixing WordPress » Can’t Upload Images in 2.5

  • I’m having a heck of a time trying to get 2.5 to allow me to upload images.

    “HTTP error.” and it says to try again later. The host says it is a ‘500 error’ I have no clue what that means.

    My host says they could plunk around try to find the error, but they want to charge to do it and don’t know how long it would take.

    Per their advice I have tried reinstalling, going back to 2.3, and then to 2.5. Nothing seems to work.

    I even went and created brand new database and did a clean install of a new blog in a subfolder and it still won’t load photos.

    I’m on Mac running Safari 3. But Firefox does the same thing.

    Any help/advice would be appreciated. Even if that is just go back to 2.3.

  • Hello?

    Have you tried all these?

    Or even searching for a solution? There’s a lot of people with these problems, and many of them have posted fixes that they found.

    Yes, I have searched and tried everything I could in the forums.

    I did just find a plugin that seems to work.

    I was just able to upload an image with it. I did turn it off and try the standard uploader, but it still wouldn’t work. It errored out while crunching.

    So I guess I have my problem solved.

    Getting the same problem here!!! And getting pretty frustrated with WP! I have reinstalled and tried the plug and still nothing! All I can get is HTTP Error and then sometime the image is uploaded but then I cannot get it to show a thumbnail. It will just insert the full size image! Can anyone offer any other suggestions?

    Same problem, I don’t like WP 2.5 at all, upgraded 1 blog & now hesitating to upgrade the rest. WP was simple, that’s what I liked best in it ..

    I had a similar problem with my blog. Was fine until I upgraded to 2.5.
    If you have exhausted all other avenues, I would contact your host. My host (Hostgator) was blocking the upload of images for security. I had to tell them the location of all of my blogs so that they could remove the security feature. This worked perfectly.

    When I was getting the problem I was just getting “http error”, but I know some people got “crunching” instead.

    It seems that the server was logging this message: mod_security: Access denied with code 403. Pattern match “^Shockwave Flash” at HEADER(“USER-AGENT”) [id “***MY ID”][rev “1”] [msg “SpamBot UA”] [severity “CRITICAL”] [hostname “***MY-DOMAIN***”] [uri “/testing/blog/wp-admin/async-upload.php”]

    Hope this helps you guys. I spent hours trying sugegsted fixes. I never would have guessed that it was a security issue with my host. After contacting them it was fixed within the hour.
    At first they argued that it was 3rd party software, but I told them that I had a test blog and I also had blogs on 2 servers and it was the same on all of them. They referred me to their higher level support and they fixed it within an hour.

    Let me know the outcome.
