I am on the latest version of Wordpress 3.8.1 Some images will work, others will give me an http error. It appears the bigger images give an error, but i have uploaded files this large in the past...they are less than 1MB

Hello photofwd, sorry to hear that you're having some issues.

Unfortunately I don't see any errors logged specifically mentioning any problems from your account on the server. When your images fail to upload in WordPress, is there a specific error message that you're receiving?

It seems that you might be using the Photo Gallery plugin, so it might be something to do with the plugin itself, and not WordPress directly. It could possibly be conflicting with other plugins that you have installed.

You might also be encountering a PHP error with larger files due to them taking a bit longer to process. In you /public_html/php.ini file, you currently have this set:
max_execution_time = 30
max_input_time = 60

You might need to adjust these if you're uploading larger images from a slow connection.

If there would be any way for us to attempt to re-create the issue, that would be the quickest way to solve the problem. If you could please provide as much info as possible when the image uploads are failing, such as the time an upload was attempted, and even better if you had the image name so we can review the logs looking for requests regarding that image.

Please let us know if you had any further questions.
