Support » Fixing WordPress » Media Uploader- Audio Uploads stop

  • drezac


    I recently ran into a problem where I can’t upload audio mp3s. They usually get to about 50 % then stop. Sometimes I get an IO Error. If I don’t use the Flash Uploader the page times out.

    We haven’t changed anything since then. Thought it might be the TImThumb thing- fixed that. Still nothing. Tried multiple browsers. Nothing. Tried another computer. That didn’t work either. Renamed the mp3s. Still nothing. We’ve been running this site for about 8 months without a problem. Images work. Just not audio.

    Any ideas- where I can start?

    Is this a standalone site or are you running multisite? Do you have a blog quota? How large are the audio files, PHP has its own file size limits and someone may have played around with those in php.ini.



    It’s a standalone hosted on godaddy. The uploader has, in the past, been crabby, but it’s never stopped altogether. It doesn’t give me an issue with images.

    This is what my php5.ini looks like:

    register_globals = off
    allow_url_fopen = off
    expose_php = Off
    max_input_time = 60
    variables_order = "EGPCS"
    extension_dir = ./
    upload_tmp_dir = /tmp
    precision = 12
    SMTP =
    url_rewriter.tags = "a=href,area=href,frame=src,input=src,form=,fieldset="
    memory_limit = 100M
    upload_max_filesize = 192M
    post_max_size = 100M
    file_uploads = On

    Nothing has been changed in the past few days that I’m aware of.

    Ideas? Strategies? Here’s a silly question. I have two files- one that says php.ini and another that says php5.ini Should I get rid of one of them?



    My suggestion to Godaddy, was that something has changed on their end, but of course they didn’t agree.



    I wouldn’t delete either of them. php5.ini is the config file for PHP5, php.ini is for v4 and earlier. To see which php.ini is used by PHP on your web server, create a file with only
    <?php phpinfo(); ?>
    as the contents, and save it in your local web root as check_php.php. Open the file in your browser as http://localhost/check_php.php, to find the path to the php.ini file your web server is using.

    You may wish to ensure that the upload temp directories are not running out of space.
