Support » Fixing WordPress » HTTP Error while uploading images.

  • Hey,

    Just have a small problem. Whenever I try to upload an image to WP 3.5 it tells me HTTP error or if I go with the old uploader it throws me to a 503 error page.

    I’ve tried disabling all my plugins and switching back to the default theme. No luck….

    I’ve found out that I can upload small images but not anything bigger than 383 x 383. Anything over this number (regardless of size) will just give a http error.

    Any idea on what I can do to solve this problem?

    If you don’t have a backup of your web files, many hosting provider have a daily n weekly backup. So You can ask them to rollback your files.
