Solution For WordPress Uploading Image Problem

April 30th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Blogging Tools, How to, WordPress, WordPress Tips

After upgrading to WordPress 2.5/WordPress 2.5.1, I couldn’t upload any pictures anymore. When I clicked on Add an Image/Choose File from the editor, a window showed up: From Computer; HTTP error… An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later. See the screenshot below:wp_image_upload_error.jpg

This was so frustrated since I uploaded pictures a lot. After a couple days of searching on the Internet, I finally found a solution to this problem. Hopefully you can be beneficial too if you have the same problem like this. Just follow the steps below to fix this problem:

  • Using FireFTP to download your .htaccess from your WP folder to your PC (Personal Computer). If you don’t have FireFTP, then use whatever FTP you have.
  • Edit your .htaccess file by inserting the following codes:
  • <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
  • See the highlighted portion of the codes that I inserted in my .htaccess file:
  • # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /blog/
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /blog/index.php [L]
    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    # END WordPress
  • Make sure you save the .htaccess file
  • After you’ve done that, upload .htaccess file back to WP folder
  • Log in to your WordPress Dashboard; you should not have any problem to upload your images now
