Support » Localhost Installs » CGI Error on upload media files

  • Hi all,

    My server is:
    Win 2003
    Microsoft-IIS/6.0 configured with FastCGI to run php
    MySql 5.5.18

    After the upgrade to the 3.5.1 from (3.4) version I cannot use the “Upload New Media” admin tool without receiving a CGI Error :

    “The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers.”

    There is many reference online about this error but I did not find anything about this particular circumstance.

    So, even if I receive the error, I can see that the media file has been upload and it appears on the media list.

    The only difference I can notice with a file uploaded in the 3.4 version is that the dimension parameter is not showed in the details page (wp-admin/post.php?post=18&action=edit), ex:

    “Dimensions: 1000 × 221”

    For this reason I guess that there is a problem when WP updates this value on the database or even when it calculates this value.

    I can add to that issue that even if the upload is done, the file is not resized to the other standard sizes: 150*x, 300*x, 500*x ..

    So I believe that the error source is the function that crop the uploaded images.

    Anyone had this problem before?

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Have you asked your hosts about this?

    Yes I have the complete control of the server that runs the WP site but I cannot find what is bad configured on this.

    The previous version (3.4) was running well and after the update i came into this issue.
