    So this is the story, we uploaded our first episode last week and it was easy and simple. uploaded the mp3 to wordpress and it went live. but for some reason we tried uploading it again this week and there was a http error so we downloaded filezilla and tried uploading it that way and it uploaded but the mp3 file wont play, then i erased it from filezilla completely and tried to upload the mp3 the way we did before now it says that its already downloaded and in the media file but there is nothing there.

    “Unexpected response from the server. The file may have been uploaded successfully. Check in the Media Library or reload the page.”

    Were you able to find anything? I’m still trying to get the podcast to upload through the rss feed, but wordpress isn’t letting me upload it at all.

    Here is the message that I’m getting: “Unexpected response from the server. The file may have been uploaded successfully. Check in the Media Library or reload the page.”

    Might be a long-shot, but could you try the Health Check plugin and see if it turns anything up: https://wordpress.org/plugins/health-check/

    Someone else has also created a new ticket about this in trac; maybe keep an eye on it: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/48778

    WordPress handles uploading of multiple files with the same name. It renames the files by appending “-1”, “-2”, etc. to the end. Just re-tested that with several file types, image, audio, video, and all worked properly.

    The “Unexpected response from the server…” error message replaced the old “HTTP error” message and means there was a serious error on the server, usually a PHP fatal error/server crash.

    If you have access to any server logs, please try uploading several times then look at the logs. If you don’t have access to error logs, contact your web hosting company and ask them to look at the error logs around the time you tried to upload.
