WordPress 2.7.1 Flash Upload HTTP Fix

I have this problem when I upgraded from 2.6 version of WordPress to version 2.7. I can’t seem to upload anything using the flash image uploader. It has been on going since a few months back. I have searched for some solutions on the internet, but none seemed to mention about how to fix this version but version 2.5.

I then so happen to chance upon this solution on this site. But to spare you the details all you need to do is to modify your .htacess file in your server. If you really don’t know how to do that, I suggest you give the site a visit to learn it step by step.

Finally Uploader is Solved

Paste this following lines on the top  in the .htacess file and you’re good to go.

#BEGIN Image Upload HTTP Error Fix
<IfModule mod_security.c>
<Files async-upload.php>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off
</Files>
</IfModule>
<IfModule security_module>
<Files async-upload.php>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off
</Files>
</IfModule>
<IfModule security2_module>
<Files async-upload.php>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off
</Files>
</IfModule>
#END Image Upload HTTP Error Fix

That’s all there is to it.
