Ok in Chrome is gives me a error message as per below.
However I have disabled the flash upload and now it is uploading ok?
So does anyone know why this may happen? As it was ok a few days ago... weird indeed?
Maybe my host has done something to my account, because when I was having issues I tried to upload multiple files and my host banned my IP (again) apparently. Which doesnt seem to make sense to me.. anyway..
It's very possible that there are mod_security rules that are being triggered; we have seen that before. Alternatively, if your forum is behind password protection (via .htaccess), Flash has issues with that so it likely won't work.
I recently moved hosting companies from one VPS to Linode. After the move everything was working fine, but I started having members complaining that some images were not uploading properly.
They would upload an attachment (image) and the progress bar would hit 100% and then nothing would happen.
After a bunch of researching, I changed the following settings for PHP and MySQL to match my previous VPS. I'm unfortunately not sure which one was successful in fixing the problem, but wanted to post here (and a few other related threads) to share that this worked for me!
memory_limit = from 32M to 158M
max_allowed_packet=268435456 to max_allowed_packet=64M
wait_timeout=10 to 45
(make sure to restart your services after you make the changes)
