error uploading through wordpress

hi guys,

when i am uploading through wordpress i get the following error

Not Acceptable

An appropriate representation of the requested resource /wp-admin/media-upload.php could not be found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

is this an issue with my host? or the theme?

Since the error originates from wp-admin, it would seem that An appropriate representation of the requested resource /wp-admin/media-upload.php could not be found on this server would be a WordPress error.

Do you have the latest version of WordPress installed on your site?
