Cannot upload images pictures photos in WordPress 2.5

3 Apr 2008 | Wordpress |  20 comments

Are you a WordPress Blogger who has just updated to WordPress 2.5 and discovered that you cannot upload any images, pictures, photos etc? Try out this fix then.

Edit the .htaccess file
Add the following lines of text to your .htaccess file:

<IfModule mod_security.c>
SetEnvIfNoCase Content-Type \
“^multipart/form-data;” “MODSEC_NOPOSTBUFFERING=Do not buffer file uploads”

<IfModule mod_gzip.c>
mod_gzip_on No

Deimos’s WordPress is installed in the root path i.e. ahkong.net so this method works for Deimos and after doing this, he is able to upload images, pictures, photos etc.

It appears that adding these few lines of code to your .htaccess file works too:

<IfModule mod_security.c>
<Files async-upload.php>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off

Deimos did not use this method, but apparently yung. did and it worked for him.

    I knew something like this will happened, that’s why I didn’t upgrade yet. It’ll take time to upgrade and solve any problems. But like it or not I must upgrade sooner or later 😛

    I do not use the internal upload gallery thingy… because I am using external image hosting…. that’s why I didn’t notice it…. and apparently, when I did, all I need to do was allow the uploads folder 777 permission…. or something like that…. my htaccess has the necessary codes in it already, due to some earlier problems when I just started out using WordPress….

    I still haven’t used the dashboard so I don’t know if I can upload images there, but I can with LiveWriter.
    U drop I Link seems to be really cool.

    Nope. No problem in uploading image for me. I do have one issue with photo caption though — I don’t see the point of including the photo caption feature in the image uploading mode when the caption won’t be appearing on the blog posts. 😡

    So far my experience with WordPress 2.5 has been ok except a few bugs like the popularity contest plugin which you need to edit line 59 of the php code. Others has been cool and no problems at all. Images, videos, gallery has been easier in 2.5.
    The only part i find quite sometime to figure out is the widgets section….. earlier versions are much more simpler.
