Fix: http error while uploading images to a WP post


Method 1 : Change the memory limit in your WordPress configuration

Required : An FTP client and a text editor
While I prefer using CoreFTP and notepad or notepad++, any FTP client or editor will do the job.

  • Login to your FTP server
  • Locate “wp-config.php” file
  • Right click the file and click on edit
  • memory_limit
  • Insert the code as highlighted in the image above

define( ‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘256M’ );

Save the file and overwrite it, if prompted.

Method 2: Logout and Log back in

  • Log out of your WordPress
  • Log in again
  • Try to upload the image to check if it works

Solution : Windows Media Player cannot play some media files : missing codecs

After Reading this you will be able to play almost all type of media files on your computer. Different media files need different codecs to run properly. This problem can sometimes lead to misery for a user. You want to play a song or a movie and you get an error that some codec is missing and required to play that file.

The Simplest of all the ways to get those files to play are :

K-lite codec package comes with Media Player Classic that I personally like to watch movies on.
