Trouble when uploading PNG images (and/or other file types ?)

(1/8) > >>

Well, I still don't have found why, but it seems that some members have trouble when the upload png files.

When it happens, can you please try this trick and post the result back below ? Thanks !

- when you upload a png image, you get a 'Connection was reset" error - or perhaps a message ""your attachment couldn't be saved. This might happen because it took too long to upload or the file is bigger than the server will allow"
- just try to upload a jpg (or a gif ?) image
- then try again with the guilty png file.

It did work on my tests... but I'm not 100% sure.

Thanks for helping with your results !

Hi DM,

I don't know if this is related, but I just had a problem attaching some .JPGs to my latest post. The message I received was:

--- Quote ---An Error Has Occurred!
Your attachment has failed security checks and cannot be uploaded. Please consult the forum administrator.
--- End quote ---

Then I tried a .PNG instead, which at least seemed to upload the image. However then I saw:

--- Quote ---No data received
Unable to load the web page because the server sent no data.
--- End quote ---

Any suggestions about how to get around this issue?

P.S. After some random experimentation I eventually got things to work. See

I'm not sure which steps (if any!) were significant though!

Tried a couple times to upload a gif (640kb) last night -- browser just hangs.
Tried again this morning with a slightly smaller file (528kb) -- same results.
  But, was able to upload a jpeg!
Then tried again on the smaller gif file -- still no luck.
I have "never" gotten an error message (except some time ago when I made a second attempt on a post I thought hadn't made it through, and got a message that this had already posted).


New params and tests under way...
