I am having this same annoying issue many other have: When I am trying to upload images into Wordpress via the media uploader, it gives me an http error. Now I have tried the following, but nothing works:

  • Multi-File uploader and the Simple browsers uploader
  • Everything as stated in this post, including the 'memory fix', but still not.

What is even more strange, and pointing to a server problem perhaps, is the following:

  • I have a shared Linux hosting server account
  • Inside the public_html folder, I have 4 different wordpress websites, where each website uses its own wordpress installation, and they all have the same problem
  • I use different versions of wordpress - 3.5 and 3.6 between the different installations
  • Even starnger, is that up until today, everything worked great, until I added another folder for a new wordpress installation.
  • Each installation uses its own DB
  • I do not use multi-site

Can anyone please tell me why I keep getting this error?


  • Which PHP version are you using? I have seen this with PHP 5.3 only. – fuxia Sep 1 '13 at 13:46
  • Hey. sorry for the late reply. The version I am using is: PHP version 5.3.27 – DextrousDave Sep 4 '13 at 17:34
  • What do you suggest I do? – DextrousDave Sep 4 '13 at 17:39
  • PHP 5.3 is a out of date already, try an upgrade. – fuxia Sep 4 '13 at 18:46

    Thank you Toscho. I have contacted my Web Host Provider and I will update here as soon as the upgrade is done. – DextrousDave Sep 11 '13 at 12:24
