Hi,

I was creating some articles and upload an image for each in wordpress. From one moment to the other, failed to upload images. I've tried through the media gallery but the error is the same. The size of the images is small about 200kb and does .jpg and .png extensions.

Http Error message appears.

Image attached.

best regards

In some cases, this is due to an incompatible plug-in.
If you have a plug-in called EWW Image Optimizer, deactivate it and try the upload again.
If that doesn't fix it, try disabling some other plug-ins and see if the problem goes away.

If you're using a WP cache plug-in, make sure you delete your cache each time.

If it still doesn't work, and if you aren't running the latest version of WordPress, take a full backup of WordPress and the database and then update WordPress, then clear your browser (and Wordpress) cache and try again.

If neither of those work, here are some more things you can try:

change/add this to your wp-config.php
     define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64MB');

check the permissions on the /wp-content/uploads folder, set to 755

glad to hear you were able to identify the issue. Contact the plug-in developer and see if there is an update or a way to resolve your issue.
