    I have installed the version 1.6 of the theme “Choices” and after upgrading to wordpress 3.5 not working properly the charger from multimedia gallery, returning an error called “HTTP ERROR” without further explanation. No plugins were installed subsequently or some other element that may affect its operation.

    Can anyone help? Thank you.



    Please try to upload all files again – maybe one or more files are corrupt. I’d re-upload the WordPress and theme files with a ftp tool (like Filezilla). If this doesn’t help please contact your hoster and ask for an error log.

    Best regards,



    Hi I have done several tests, I reinstalled wordpress manually from my FTP client as you indicate. After installation (without installing “Choices theme”) the image gallery working properly. When I do the installation Choices theme, I try again to upload a picture and that’s when I get this error.

    The wp instalation is clean and does not contain any additional plugin. The problem starts after installing the theme.



    In this case try to increase the allocated php memory: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

    I’d set it to 128M.

    Best regards,



    Already had this setting in wp-config.php. I also tested too with the update released today by wordpress (3.5.1)


    Hi supercoco,

    This is an error I’ve seen pop up on various themes and installations with no connected cause. There are tons of threads on this spread out over the wordpress forums and other support forums and the fixes are never quite the same.

    Try #6 and look at #7 here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/25-imagemedia-uploader-problems

    Additionally, try changing the permissions on your wp-content/uploads folder to 755

    In your Settings>Media try checking/unchecking the upload organization option and save the changes. See if either setting fixes the issue.

    If you can find out what version of php you are running on your server, that may give a clue as well.

    If nothing else, call your hosting provider and explain the issue. They might have run into it before and changing a setting in their modsecurity files might do it.

    Its a lot of suggestions, but as I said there are a lot various little things that can all cause the same symptom.
