I have a blog @ http://nexus.sc2mx.com/ that I just created. I also created an upload folder under /home/romri/webapps/nexus/wp-content/uploads and set it's permissions to 755.
If I upload manually via FTP and then link to the file directly, it works, but when I try to upload files from the Wordpress Control Panel, I get: "Add media files from your computer HTTP error."
I need to get that working because I will be handing over the blog to someone else and I don't want to give him/her direct access to my server files.
I googled the error but I didn't find a solution.

That "http:" bit looked suspicious, so I checked your
I think that should fix the problem - if it doesn't, then please open a support ticket and we'll try to take a closer look.

Hi there -- I'm having a similar problem with my uploads on a site I'm working on at dubro.webfaction.com . Uploads were not failing last week, but are now failing occasionally. I wonder if it has to do with having changed the site URL through the WP admin settings -- was the database not updated, perhaps? And what will this mean when I change the site URL again (to a different domain that I own and am currently running a different application on) when I go live in a few days? But then why would I sometimes be able to upload images if this setting was incorrect? Is there a size limit other than the Wordpress-imposed 20MB limit? The photos in question are around 3-5mb, as this website needs high-quality photos.
Update: It looks like it's just happening for files above 2mb. Why would this be happening if the WP setting is set to a max of 20mb?
