  • I was added the code in .htmaccess also the code in the functions.php without success. Then I login in the cpanel, check the PHP configuration and realize that I was running PHP 4.2.

    Now is working.


    This occurred as a random problem for me – on failure, I would try and try again until it would work. Today I had a file that would absolutely NOT upload without the dastardly HTTP error.

    Following the advice on another thread, I switch my PHP from 5.6 to 7.0 and the problem went away immediately. Now, there’s also the notion of “Fast CGI”, and that’s what I had with 5.6, and I did not select that for 7.0, so that may be a contributor as well.

    In any event, my host (Dreamhost) allows easy switching of the PHP version in the domain control panel, so it’s worth a try.



    I had the same issue recently. It seems to be a theme and/or plugin incompatibility issue with the newer versions of WordPress. I had the issue while uploading through the theme’s plugins.

    I uploaded the image through the media library and no problems.



    @randyking: This did the trick for me too, updating PHP 5.6 -> 7.0, issue gone. Thanks a lot!
