When you are installing a WordPress site on a new server, or switching to a vanilla install of AWS there are certain features we have to switch on in order for WordPress to play ball.
This should avoid you having issues using the image uploader – with the http error. or cannot write to /dir error messages.
This sample .htaccess file is a collection of code that does just that,
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
# Exclude the file upload and WP CRON scripts from authentication
Allow from all
Deny from none
Also wp-config.php file – you’ll need to increase the memory limit.
/** Memory Limit */
That’s it – you should be done.
