Support » Fixing WordPress » Using image uploader on a Mac

  • I am currently unable to use the flash uploader (it does not appear as an option) with any browser on my Mac – it works fine with Windows-based browsers, however. I understand that it is disabled when WordPress detects a Mac client and mod_security in use (any explanation why, btw?), and I have been able to get flash uploader to appear (and work) by commenting out these lines from /wp-admin/includes/media.php, as described here.

    771: if ( false !== strpos(strtolower($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']), ‘mac’) && apache_mod_loaded(’mod_security’) )
    772:     $flash = false;

    That said, I’m hoping to tweak my settings on the server side so that I don’t have to keep editing my media.php whenever it gets updated. I’ve tried adding various combinations of the following to my .htaccess file, but no luck. Anyone has any suggestions?

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
      <Files async-upload.php>
        SecFilterEngine Off
        SecFilterScanPOST Off
      </Files>
    </IfModule>
    <IfModule security_module>
      <Files async-upload.php>
        SecFilterEngine Off
        SecFilterScanPOST Off
      </Files>
    </IfModule>
    <IfModule security2_module>
      <Files async-upload.php>
        SecFilterEngine Off
        SecFilterScanPOST Off
      </Files>
    </IfModule>
