I have a huge problem with images with a size greater 1MB in my website and I really need some help.

If I try to upload an image with a size greater 1MB in my Media Library I get a generic error without any info: "An error ocurred in the upload. Please try again later"

The surprising thing is that if I go to the "uploads" directory through my FTP, the image is there! But I can't work with it from WordPress!

I already try (without success) to:

  • Set upload_max_filesize = 40M at php.ini
  • Deactivate all my plugins
  • Changing my theme from a default one
  • Set at .htacccess: RLimitMEM max
  • Put at wp-config.php: define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '93M');

This is my phpinfo(). Any help to solve this, please?

Solved with this plugin, it seems that it's a problem related with memory in 1&1 hosting: https://schnurpsel.de/wordpress-plugins/123-image-resize/
