Awaiting feedback  Uploading an avatar takes a long time, sometimes not uploading at all


Well-known member
Own beta 2, no problems here. I haven't set any limitations that I know of so really strange.

Attachment upload with Flash also does not work anymore (stops at 100%) not sure if that's connected with this issue, just saying.

They're almost undoubtedly connected.

Has your host/you made any changes server-side since you got the flash uploader working by disabling mod_security?

Just asked and they told me they didn't change anything except for an execute permission on a TMP folder, but they said this should not be allowed anyway.

The strange thing now is that I can upload some images as avatar (though slow) but others not like the one in the OP. They all work here... it drives me crazy :confused:

And the attachment problem is solved, that what caused by a conflict in the htaccess file.

Just to check, try turning off JS and uploading an avatar the base way. That should get any JS/json interactions out of the way.

If you still have the problem, if you can PM me with FTP details and a test account, I'll have a look.
