Fix for HTTP Error when uploading images in WordPress 2.8
When installing this wordpress blog I encountered a problem when trying to upload files. When googling the problem I found that some had been trying to mess around with the .htaccess file. I tried that, but it didn’t seem to do the trick for this version of wordpress. So after a while I found a solution which worked on my version of wordpress.
The fix for wordpress 2.8.2
Go to settings and then miscellaneous and write in the full path to your uploads folder. Example: /full/path/to/wordpress/wp-content/uploads. And use the “browser uploader” when uploading.
If you don’t know the full path to your wordpress directory you can create a PHP file in your wordpress directory with the content
<?php echo dirname($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']) ?>
Run this file in your browser and it will show you the full path to your wordpress directory.
Also make sure that the folder “uploads” exists in your wp-content folder and is writable by Apache.
