WordPress image upload problem test in Firefox

I just loaded an image into a post for the first time in four days using Internet Explorer/Vista. Now the same thing in Firefox:

  • First click “add media” icon in post editor
  • Then from computer “choose files to upload”
  • It says “crunching” then shows a new screen
  • Then click “insert into post”
  • The screen goes white and is lost in space.
  • …or alternately from gallery–insert gallery into post or insert an individual image into the post–the white screen of death!

and nothing.

    Same thing. Upload works fine in IE but not in FF3.

    I also have the same problem. I used FileZilla to check the directory in the server, and found that the file that has been uploaded, are owned by Apache, instead of my own ftp account.

    I guess this is the reason why it does not work.

    Any idea how to solve it?

    I finally got the answer from another forum. This is crazy how long it took. Everything led me to believe it was a problem with Flash 10, but it was not.

    Here is the fix everyone:
    No caps in the name of the domain URL


    I finally got it!

    Under Settings -> WordPress Address (URL), my domain name had mixed capitalization. Once I changed it to all lower-case, it started working.

    I found this solution in another thread, reposting in case it helps anyone:

    I found that my problem came with my WordPress address (URL) having uppercase letters, and apparently PHP does not like that. I suggest making sure that the URL is all lowercase. It fixed my site, who knows, it could fix yours.
