Whenever I would try to upload an image to my blog the file would upload, but I would then get a red http error, as seen in this picture below:
With this error it wasn’t possible for me to choose the preset image size “medium”, which I configured to the width of one column. Here is what I’m talking about:
Just open your .htaccess file that is in the same folder as your wp-content folder:
and add “AddType x-mapp-php5 .php” to the top, as so:
Once you save that, you should be able to upload pictures without the error and regain wordpress’s resizing feature.
I got this little snippet from errors when installing either joomla or drupal, so when this http error came up, I figured it couldn’t hurt if I add it to .htaccess for wordpress and it worked! Hopefully this helps since online I didn’t see anyone else recommending this fix.
