WordPress connects to an external server? Cryptic message from host
I’m having problems uploading images to my wordpress site, on uploading images in the Write post sceen, the image fails to upload and the following error is displayed. “Failed to write file to disk. Back to Image Uploading”
I’ve checked permissions and there’s enough space on the server, but a support topic in this forum suggested it might be a host problem. I emailed my host and received the following reply:
Thank you for your email.
Our engineers have stated that there is an issue with wordpress as it trying to connect to an external server, we cannot allow this access unless you can provide the address where wordpress is trying to connect tpthen we may be able to allow this to passed through our firewall.
If you need any further help please let us know.
Is this true? It sounds unlikely to me, unless it means the computer I’m uploading from.
Needless to say this worked fine and stopped working without warning a couple of months ago. I didn’t change anything at the time that I can think of.
Thanks in advance for your help,
