Http Error when uploading images

    Is there a way to fix this “http error” that appears in red when uploading images. I tried googling a solution and found two related to a plug-in on some wp admin file and the other, pasting a code on a .htaccess file – i have no clue of either and I think those only work when you have a hosted website, which I don’t. Please help?

    The blog I need help with is



    It would possibly help if you share the screen shot of the error you’re describing.



    I’ve tried pasting the screen shot but with no luck! but basically this is what shows up on the “Add an Image” window

    Add media files from your computer
    HTTP error.
    Allowed file types: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, pdf, doc, ppt, odt, pptx, docx.

    Choose files to upload
    You are using the Flash uploader. Problems? Try the Browser uploader instead.

    After a file has been uploaded, you can add titles and descriptions.

    Upload Cancel
    You are using the Browser uploader. Try the Flash uploader instead.

    108.0 MB used, 2.9 GB (96.5%) upload space remaining. You can upload mp3, m4a, wav, ogg audio files and increase your available space with a Space Upgrade. You can upload videos and embed them directly on your blog with a Video Upgrade.


    The “http error” pops up, highlighted in red and the image is not uploaded.



    Sounds like you have a self-installed blog.
    This is a forum and you’ll need to ask this question at:

    I’m also really struggling. Something has changed! I can’t see the majority of my images on my wordpress blog, all coming up as broken links – and I’m trying to upload a header image and just get a blank box with broken link symbol. Loading the uploader page also brings up a page load up error. It was fine until this wekend on my other blogs. Any advice? as an example. Thanks,



    Are you a customer in UK?
    (at least the latter seems to be the case from your site)

    If so, your problem is very likely related to what’s described here.
