Support » Fixing WordPress » Upload HTTP Error on upload

  • Whenever i try to upload images on a post, they get stuck in “crunching mode” and after that the message HTTP ERROR appears. I’ve tried disabling all plugins, changing browsers and computers but nothing works. To make it short: I can’t upload ANY images on my blog. Need help ASAP.
    Thanx!

  • Hi Tadobi@gmail.com,

    I am having the same issue, and if you have spent the last two days trawling Google as I have, you will see that this issue has been intermiten for quite some years!

    Below is a list of things I have tried and hasn’t worked for me, but might work for you:

    1. Make sure you are running the latest version of flash for your browser.

    2. Turn off the flash uploader: http://www.chewie.co.uk/general/wordpress-image-upload-http-error/

    3. Edit you htaccess file to amend mod_security access: </IfModule>
    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </Files>
    </IfModule>

    4. Changing permissions on the image upload folders to 777 (A security risk in it’s own right!)

    My quest continues… I will post back here if I find a permanent fix.

    Would mind telling me what set up you are running, for example; what version of WP and what host you are using and what server – linux/windows, dedicated/shared/vps/

    Thanx for the reply!

    I have edited the .htaccess file and emptied the cache on my browser. Everything seems ok for now but… you never know!

    Hi Tadobi,

    Glad one of them worked for you. I am wondering whether I have not edited my htaccess file correct, is this what you have got?

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    </IfModule>
    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </Files>
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    AuthType Basic
    AuthName share
    Satisfy Any
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </Files>
    </IfModule>

    Thanks Tadobi, let me know if it breaks again. Might then discover the culprit!

    You may also want to check with your host tech support. If they are doing upgrades or maintenance work you will have difficulties uploading. I had similar problems and found my server was hopelessly overloaded. I changed my hosting service provider and all my problems disappeared.
