Avete problemi di caricamento delle immagini sul vostro sito web WordPress?

Per la maggior parte dei principianti, gli errori di caricamento delle immagini possono essere fonte di confusione perché possono comparire senza che si faccia nulla di diverso. In effetti, il mancato caricamento delle immagini è uno dei problemi più comuni in WordPress. Fortunatamente, è abbastanza facile da risolvere e potete farlo da soli.

In questo articolo vi mostreremo come correggere il problema del caricamento delle immagini in WordPress.

Cosa causa il problema di caricamento delle immagini in WordPress?

Il problema di caricamento delle immagini in WordPress è in genere causato da permessi di file errati. I file di WordPress sono memorizzati sul server di web hosting e necessitano di autorizzazioni specifiche per file e directory per funzionare.

Permessi di file errati impediscono a WordPress di leggere o caricare i file sul server di hosting. È possibile che venga visualizzato il seguente errore di WordPress quando si carica un file di immagine:

‘Impossibile creare la directory wp-content/uploads/2019/04. La sua directory madre è scrivibile dal server?”.

Unable to create directory error

Oppure si potrebbe visualizzare l’errore:

Il file caricato non può essere spostato in wp-content/uploads/’.

Un altro segno di questo problema è la scomparsa delle immagini dalla libreria multimediale di WordPress.

Missing images in media library

Il mio sito funzionava bene prima. Chi ha cambiato i permessi dei file?

Questo può accadere per una serie di motivi. Una configurazione errata sul vostro server di hosting condiviso può talvolta modificare tali permessi senza che voi facciate nulla.

Ad esempio, il provider di web hosting ha eseguito un aggiornamento che ha modificato inaspettatamente i permessi dei file.

Se tutto il resto funziona bene sul vostro sito WordPress, potete semplicemente applicare i permessi di file corretti per risolvere il problema del caricamento delle immagini.

Detto questo, vediamo come impostare i permessi di file corretti per risolvere i problemi di caricamento delle immagini sul vostro sito WordPress.

Correzione del problema di caricamento delle immagini in WordPress

Per modificare i permessi dei file, è necessario utilizzare un client FTP.

Per prima cosa, collegatevi al vostro sito web tramite FTP e poi passate alla cartella /wp-content/. Al suo interno troverete la cartella uploads, in cui WordPress memorizza tutti i media caricati, comprese le immagini.

Ora fate clic con il tasto destro del mouse sulla directory uploads e selezionate “Autorizzazioni file”.

Opening file permissions dialog box for uploads folder

Verrà visualizzata la finestra di dialogo dei permessi dei file.

Per prima cosa, è necessario impostare i permessi dei file per la directory uploads e per tutte le sottodirectory al suo interno su ‘744’.

Change folder permissions

A tale scopo, inserire 744 nella casella del valore numerico e selezionare la casella accanto a “Ricorrezione nelle sottodirectory”. Ora fate clic sul pulsante di opzione Applica solo alle directory.

Fare clic sul pulsante “OK” per applicare le modifiche. A questo punto il client FTP inizierà ad applicare i permessi ai file delle directory.

Nota: se l’impostazione dei permessi di directory a 744 non risolve il problema, provare con 755.

Nella fase successiva, è necessario impostare i permessi per tutti i file della cartella uploads.

Per farlo, fare clic con il tasto destro del mouse sulla directory uploads e selezionare autorizzazioni file. Nella finestra di dialogo dei permessi dei file, modificare il valore numerico in ‘644’.

Selezionate la casella accanto a “Ricorri nelle sottodirectory”. Successivamente, è necessario fare clic sul pulsante di opzione Applica solo ai file”.

Infine, è sufficiente fare clic sul pulsante “OK” per applicare le modifiche.

File permissions

Il client FTP modificherà ora i permessi per tutti i file all’interno della cartella uploads. Una volta terminato, è possibile tornare all’area di amministrazione di WordPress e provare a caricare nuovamente le immagini.

Se sul vostro sito web sono presenti moduli per il caricamento di file, dovreste testare anche quelli.

Nota: se non sapete usare un client FTP, potete anche usare il file manager fornito dalla vostra società di hosting WordPress. Poiché le schermate variano da un host all’altro, dovrete rivolgervi al loro supporto per trovare le istruzioni.

    Let’s add the fact that WordPress creates a new folder each month, in wp-content/uploads.
    Probably, when the new folder is automaticaly created, it hasn’t the correct permissions :

    We have to modify the permissions each month.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      That should not normally be the case, we would recommend checking with your hosting provider to ensure they don’t have a security setting that could be the root of that issue.

    Hello,
    I am trying to upload several photos to my website page, and keep getting the message below:
    “The server cannot process the image. This can happen if the server is busy or does not have enough resources to complete the task. Uploading a smaller image may help. Suggested maximum size is 2560 pixels.”
    I have compressed the image multiple times, shrinking the size and optimizing it, yet I continue to receive this message even after shutting down the browser and starting again. Can you please advise me on how to upload these files? Thank you!

This can happen if the server is busy or does not have enough resources to complete the task. Uploading a smaller image may help. Suggested maximum size is 2560 pixels. “).. please what can I do

  5. Michelle says

    when i upload image nmy form it say “something wentwrong, please try again” .

    can u please help how to fix this issue?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      If none of our methods are working for you, we would recommend reaching out to your hosting provider to ensure there isn’t an error on their end.

      Admin

  7. Mary says

    I’m encountering the same issue only the fix that is suggested is not working. Is there something else that can be done?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You would likely want to reach out to your hosting provider for them to take a look.

    First try to check PHP interpreter version on your server. If it 7.4 – this may cause problems. Change it to 7.3.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      Thank you for sharing that for some users who may be stuck with this error, for beginners we recommend reaching out to their hosting provider for checking if that is an issue. :)

    Images to my wordpress site seem to upload correctly but then then disappear and an icon for broken image link appears. In the media library the image shows as a gray block. If I try to edit the image then I can see the image but when I save it again it’s gray again. I checked my permissions and the are set to 755.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You may want to try updating to 744 and if that does not work, reach out to your hosting provider and they can normally assist.

      Admin

    • WPBeginner Support says

      Some hosting providers have a file manager that acts as an FTP but it would depend on your host for what is available.

      Admin

    • WPBeginner Support says

      For local installations, you would right-click the folder and go under Properties>Security to change the permissions.

    Hello
    FTP permissions are fine, when I try to upload, the original file goes to the FTP Uploads folder, but WordPress does not recognize it and displays error on upload, try again later

    Any tips?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      For some, that may be a solution but that is sadly, rarely the solution for this specific issue.

    ”Unexpected response from the server. The file may have been uploaded successfully. Check in the Media Library or reload the page.”

    I keep getting the above error whenever I try to upload an image to my newly installed WordPress.

    Please advise on how to solve it. Thank you.

  12. Anita Hiltz says

    I’m not sure this will solve my problem. I have an educational website and we give away free books and educational materials. Recently I uploaded a PDF document (a chart) into my library, put it in 2 of my web pages, and created the link to open it. That was fine, but later, I decided to improve the document, took it off, recreated it and uploaded it again to the library. The original document was deleted completely from my own files, but when I upload it to my website it comes up with the OLD document. Somehow the “delete permanently” feature within the library is NOT actually deleting it. HELP!

  13. Evie says

    I just wanted to say, thank you so much for all the help you provide. I sometimes experience odd occurrences on my website, and when I Google the problem, your website always seems to simply answer my concerns.

    Keep up the excellent work!

  14. Kyree H says

    What URL do I type in when connecting via the FTP client? The actual domain that visitors use or my wordpress URL?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      That can vary based on your host, if your normal domain does not work you would want to check with your hosting provider

      Admin

  15. Muhammad Adil says

    Hurray, I did it just change URL from Setting-General than change “WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL)” set both http to https and the issue has been resolved.

  16. Kristina says

    Hello anybody know how to fix getting your images to load the the Media Library? the files are located in the correct place on my server wp content / uploads. and i know my permissions are correcgt 755 and 0644 for the individual files.
    if i try to drag or load files from scratch into the Media Library Add New loader I always get this error- ” could not insert post into the database” thanks.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You may want to ensure there are no special characters in your file name and you’ve tried increasing the maximum upload size for possible reasons.

  17. Nicole says

    My photo’s that I am trying to upload are not even uploading. It is currently stuck on the download bar and I don’t know how to up the uploading process or how to stop it and try again. Please help. We are on a time crunch.

    Thank you.

  18. James Howlett says

    New image uploaded always has 640 permission. And if I access image with 640 permission, it will return 404. But if I change it to 644, I can access the image.

    Is 640 the correct permission for image uploaded? Or is it 644?

  19. sandra willie says

    I’m having a problem sizing my photos for a wordpress site and getting them to display correctly. I’ve resized the images several times to smaller, but they still appear showing only portion of the image and not the full image – even though I have also tried resizing in the edit section of the gallery! How do I get them to load in the full size if the image is a suitable size and resolution!

    • WPBeginner Support says

      When adding the image to a post/page you may want to check for the dropdown in the bottom right stating the size and set it to the full size for your image.

      Admin

  20. Jessica says

    Hi. When I upload a rectangular photo it uploads as a square cutting off most of the image. Any suggestions? Thank you!

    • WPBeginner Support says

      Your theme may be generating a new image size, you may want to check under Settings>Media to see if you’ve enabled image cropping there.

  21. Alexandru says

    I’m having an issue when in editing mode upon uploading product images in gallery. I uploaded some images for a product gallery with no issues then I went to upload new ones for another product. I select the images/upload into gallery but instead of uploading the new ones I selected it uploads the ones from the previous upload.. Ctrl+F5, delete cookies, system restart… nothing. Still the same issue.
    Any ideas?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      It sounds like you would want to reach out to the support for the plugin you are using for your products to ensure that it is not a hiccup with the plugin itself.

    Hi everyone,

    I am scratching my head on this current issue with WordPress 5.0 logo uploading. The image file (59K) will upload to media no problem, but it WILL NOT show on the page, instead it would show my icon file instead. I don’t understand. I’ve tried resizing the size to 100px to no prevail.

    Could this be the theme fault? I am using OceanWP. I tried contacting my host and they recommend getting my logo designer to optimise it for WP5.0. Which doesn’t make sense. if anyone could please give me any leads to this issue. Thank you!

    Thank you, i tried many things on how to fix the problem but none worked until i tried your solution by changing the file permission as shown. Your solution to the problem worked for me. Again, a big thank you.

  25. Michiel says

    Hi all,

    Thanks for all your information and suggestions.
    I tried everything:
    – the 755,744,744 and 655 in filezilla. Nothing worked.
    – Media, upload etc. Also nothing.

    All of a sudden I could upload two images. And afterwards I tried the upload a 3rd image and now I am stuck with the same problem again. Every time I try to upload any image i get ‘ http-error’.

    Does anybody have some last advice?
    Help a no-knowledge-of-websitebuilding-person out!

    Thanks in advance! :)

  26. Anais says

    I have an issue that doesn’t seem to be addressed anywhere – there is no “Media” folder in my WordPress menu and I just can not figure out why and how to access it.

    I am just starting my blog and not even uploaded my theme yet. Any idea what could be the reason behind that?

    Thank you!

  27. johaness says

    hi , how can I solve this problem. of inserting image in post, , after uploading pic. when I click on insert into post nothing happens

  28. Ed S says

    I tried this initially with 744. This stopped any images appearing at all for me on either wp-admin or my live website. Which was worrying and panic inducing!
    So then tried 755, and images are appearing again on my live website. Which is a relief.
    Still having exactly the same issue with uploading images though. Getting ‘http error’.

    • Angelica Perduta says

      Same problem here. for images over a certain size. They do appear in the media library but with no thumbnail and can’t be edited. Small images do work however.

  29. JOY DUTTA says

    When i go for 744 all thumbnail are shown but uploading error remain
    but when i go for 755 thumbnail gone but uploading error solved..
    Now what shall i do.

  30. Edo Escada says

    Hi,
    I did my way, solved very well

    Go to your hosting cPanel, go to PHP Version in the Software block..
    Go to PHP Options in the right button
    Edit to be like this :
    :
    memory_limit 1024M
    post_max_size 128M
    upload_max_filesize 64M

    Then back to cPanel frontpage

    Go to ModSecurity in the Security section
    Change to Disable for your domain.

    VOILAA !!!!

    Regards
    Let me know your success story

  31. Tom says

    If the issue is cropping up after transferring a site to a new domain this works for me:
    open the Settings menu, and select Media. If you see a file path with a textbox displaying where the files should be uploaded to, delete the text in the file path textbox, and click Save Changes once you’re done.

    No try uploading an image, should work fine.

    • Katie says

      Thanks – that solved my problem. The server path had somehow been defined in Settings > Media. Removed it and replaced with the default wp-content/uploads, saved and that fixed it :-)

    • Gord says

      Hi Tom,

      I just wanted to say thank you as well. Your post saved me a lot of grief! I used a plugin to migrate a site to a new provider. The tool is excellent, but in this instance were so many files in my uploads directory that I needed to exclude images and move them separately via ftp. I spent an hour carefully checking file permissions and ownership in the WordPress uploads directory until I came across your post. Sure enough, nder “Settings / Media” there was a hardcoded path valid only with my old hosting provider. Great post!

    • ceesay says

      Thank you, thank you, thank you!! This happened when I migrated this site. Hasn’t happened to any of the other sites I’ve migrated, but the Settings>Media path was exactly the problem.

  32. Vimal says

    I am facing a very basic problem, i tried many theme but when i add an element on a fresh new page it show the default content of (pagename and the recent post widget is visible and other widgets are behind my element i.e Slider) behind my slider or hero image Guyz PLz Help me

  33. Mark Hetherington says

    I must have read two dozen different fixes fir this image error thing, then found a solution that s far, far easier than anything else I have read. In fact here’s the solution in three words: Change your browser.

    Yep, that’s all I did. I’ve tried lots of different “solutions” with no joy, then just by chance I was working on a different computer one day, using Opera instead of Chrome (I’ve had the error with IE, Edge, Firefox etc. too) and I had no problem uploading my images. I’ve been using Opera for the purpose for months now and never had the HTTP error since.

    I’m not saying it will work for every occurrence but it’s got to be worth a try!

  34. pooja says

    I have problem ..I want somebody help me please..
    Some content of website like footer content are not displayed on chrome but it displayed on other web browser.I also change the Setting of chrome but its not work .So please help me…

  35. Pooja says

    I have my old pictures in wordpress.
    But i’m unable to upload new images.

    Everytime i got this message….” Unable to create directory uploads/2017/09. Is its parent directory writable by the server”

    I tried all
    744
    755
    644
    but three of them didn’t works for me

    please tell any suggestion ?

    • Heather says

      Me too! I even thought I fixed the problem by increasing the upload size through the Media section under Settings and nope! You know what got it to work?

      Resizing my freaking images. Silly me thought I was doing that through the settings on WordPress, but nope!

      I have a Mac and I resized my large images to 1920×1080 or less and made sure my Media Settings allowed that and sure enough, it works! All those hours of frustration… *sigh* I hope that helps!

      • Joe says

        I have no problem with inserting photos by doing so inside a paragraph and wraping text around it. But I cannot insert a larger photo in an area free of a paragraph. The size of the photo doesn’t change even though the file is larger. I changed the settings (media/settings) but nothing works. Can you help?

        • WPBeginner Support says

          Hi Joe,

          Here is a simple tip that you can try if you haven’t already tried it. Press the enter key twice after adding a paragraph. Click on the upload media button to upload your photo. In the right column, select Full Size and then click on the insert image button. As soon as photo appears in your visual editor, press the enter key twice and start typing.

  36. Alice says

    It still doesn’t solve my problem. I recently moved my newly created website from a subdomain to my main domain and everything worked fine except for my uploads. I went to my optons.php and tried to change my upload path. I noticed that when I tried to upload a file, the file is not even in my folder, doesn’t show up in my media library as a thumbnail. However, when I clicked on the broken image and clicked “edit image,” the image actually showed up!!! How weird! How can I fix my problem?

    • Melina says

      Hi Alice, I have exactly the same problem! I tried all the solutions that are given down but because my problem is with my multisite duplicates and not with the root site, none of them works. I can uploads the pictures, the sub-site recognizes they are there but shows just grey thumbnails. When I go to my ftp all access are correct and I have already tried changing the upload path. Nothing works! Could you solve your problem? What was the solution??

      • Lakshya Mohan says

        Similar problem is occurring with me. I have tried everything but still no use. When I upload an image, I see a blank thumbnail clicking on which I see a blank preview, but if I click on edit then only I am able to see the image. When I put that image in any post I see a broken link.

        • Chris Culver says

          did anyone find the solution to this issue. I am having the same occurrence with a cloned site that was created to work on for a site rebuild
