    Is anyone else having this problem? Our server recently had a cpanel upgrade and now Wordpress sites on that server can no longer upload images. They get a HTTP error message.

    Hello,

    You would want to check if the permissions/ownership of the respective uploads folder has changed

    Hello :)

    Please refrain from advising users to blindly set permissions to "777" on a directory without first understanding the consequences of such an action, or determining if that's even the cause of the issue.

    What is the specific error message you see in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log when this happens? If you don't have root access, please obtain this information from your hosting provider.

    Thank you.
