    I tried to upload an image today (300kb) but got the above mentioned error message. I tried twice after that but still can’t upload. What is wrong? Please help me solve this problem asap as I need to upload my images. Thanks.


    Are you hosted here at wordpress.COM? Please provide a link to your wordpress.COM blog.


    Yes I am. It’s at http://thefunkyrooster.wordpress.com.
    I also publish a post this morning but the date was somehow changed to Dec 18! I had to manually changed it back to today’s date.


    What browser and browser version are you using, and have you tried a different browser?


    One thing I see is that somewhere in your blog, you have a link to http:/Users/carolyn/Desktop/ginko.jpg which is actually a link to your computer rather than to an uploaded image.


    @funkyrooster, I found the below on the internet, and it seems to indicate there could be several sources of the problem. If you have a DSL or cable modem, I would reboot it since one of the possible reasons for this error is a messed up internet connection. That would be a good starting place. Also, I might suggest restarting your computer in case something got messed up somehow there.

    The 502 error could originate anywhere between you and the wordpress servers, including at the wordpress servers, but since no one else has mentioned this issue here in the forums tonight, I think the problem might be somewhere between you and wordpress.

    This problem is due to poor IP communication between back-end computers, possibly including the Web server at the site you are trying to visit. Before analysing this problem, you should clear your browser cache completely.

    If you are surfing the Web and see this problem for all Web sites you try to visit, then either 1) your ISP has a major equipment failure/overload or 2) there is something wrong with your internal Internet connection e.g. your firewall is not functioning correctly. In the first case, only your ISP can help you. In the second case, you need to fix whatever it is that is preventing you reaching the Internet.

    If you get this problem for only some of the Web sites you try to visit then it is likely to be a problem at those sites i.e. one of their pieces of equipment is failing/overloaded. Contact the people at those sites.



    Hi @thesacredpath, we also face this problem, when uploading an image only 84Kb, we already reset the modem and the firewall hardware.

    Previously, we upload 1 image is successfull, now the second image is an error.

    How to resolve again ?

    I’m not sure with “..poor IP communication between back-end computers..” because we use E1 connection to connect to the internet.

    Thanks again
