Support » Fixing WordPress » Upload Error: Specified file failed upload test

  • I’m receiving the following messages when attempting to upload Media Files after a brand new WordPress install: “Upload Error: Specified file failed upload test.”

    -I have re-installed WordPress (3) times.
    -De-activated all plugins
    -Reverted to the basic TwentyNineteen Theme
    -Ensured proper permissions on all wp-content and wp-admin folders and files
    -Installed WordPress’ Help app and it shows everything is clean
    -Verified uploads are permitted in php.ini
    -Checked and double-checked all host settings and accounts
    -FTP’d images directly into the upload directory and they don’t show up under Media Files in WP either

    I’m completely baffled. Please Help!

    Hello everyone, did you get the answer you want? However, I have a small question to ask you if it is possible on this subject. Thank you for your return  Force to us. Sincerely

    Have you checked with your hosting company? They may be able to help diagnose this issue.

    You may also want to try uploading files as a different WordPress user, in case it’s a permission issue with your account (though that seems unlikely).

    That’s the expected behavior. Uploading the file via the WordPress interface does two things: put the actual file on the server, and create an associated entry in the SQL database. FTP bypasses the latter step.
