I have a new client that I’m doing some small website changes for. I did not originally build there website, nor is it using the Divi theme.
Here’s the issue: When I try to upload new images to the media library I get this error: “An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later.” However, when I look at the uploads folder via FTP, I can see the images on the server. The old images are still being shown in the media library too.
Here’s a list of everything I’ve tried while troubleshooting:
-The first thing I did was duplicate the site to my test server so I wouldn’t be troubleshooting on there live site, and to verify it wasn’t a server issue causing the error message.
-I deactivated ALL plugins.
-I changed the theme to a default WP theme.
-I changed the permalinks to the default settings.
-I repaired and optimized the database in phpmyadmin
-I Reinstalled WordPress
-I created a new .htaccess file
-I verified that the uploads folder and all subdirectories have 755 permission settings.
-I “reset” the plugins and themes folder.
