Solved: How to fix WordPress HTTP Error while uploading video

When you are on fire to write something or updating website or blog, http error brings big headache. We Creed Hosting able to fix  all the errors and issues of wordpress. This errors is most commonly caused by wrong file permissions or php file size. 

The first two fixes did not work for me but have for some people.

  • PHP Upload Size

I’m not alone. The two million plus hits returned by a quick Google search for the cause of this problem make it abundantly clear that this problem is common, and that there is neither a simple explanation why it occurs nor a single solution that prevents it from happening. Here is a summary of some of the “solutions” that have been proposed:

  • Increase PHP memory:

Add this code define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M') into your wp-config.php file. This setting may not work if your host does not allow you to increase the PHP memory limit, so I suggest talking to your support directly and ask them to change the limit for you. You’ll skip the hassle.

  • Disable mod_security

mod_security is an open source firewall that could be creating the HTTP image upload error. mod_security can be disabled by adding the code below to the .htaccess file on the server.

<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off

For more detailed information on how to edit the .htaccess file, check out this article.

Note that cPanel users can disable mod_security in the Security menu by selecting Modsec Manager and unchecking the box for the domains they wish to disable mod_security for.

  • .Disable plugins:

If the problem appears after installing a plugin, deactivate it and try it again. Some plugins can trigger the error. Otherwise, the fastest way to determine if a plugin is creating an issue is to disable all plugins and see if the issue persists. If this resolves the issue, proceed with enabling them one by one to see which plugin caused the problem.

  • Change php.ini and /or .htaccess settings: 

Edit the value defined for php_value memory_limit,
php_value memory_limit  512M
Note that the .htaccess file is not a WordPress file. For more on editing the .htaccess file, check out this link.
php.ini: Edit the value defined for memory_limit,
memory_limit = 512M
The php.ini file is not a WordPress file. If you are unfamiliar with how to edit it, contact our support team.

  • Install a newer version of php

This is the fix that did the trick for me. It basically involves modifying what version of PHP backend is responsible for processing your .php files. The PHP backend should be changed from the FastCGI version to the non-FastCGI versions as described below.

  • Change upload folder permissions

Upload directory file permission may cause this error. just change 755.



After developing a successful website, crashing website or blog is a crucial thing. In WordPress Content Management System, Crashing is quite common thing. Why it’s a common thing?

  1. Hosting: Hosting is the foremost important thing. Our website files, databases and images, audio/video files rely on it. Use trust worthy hosting service for your website designing service. When choosing a trust worthy hosting provider try to find some information about server type, data centre features, support and customer care service and customer reviews.
  2. Theme: Don’t use free themes for your blogs and websites. Many themes have plenty of bugs and security loop holes. Choose a professional web developer for developing theme. If you unable to find professional, better to choose professional theme stores like theme forest, elegant themes. Install quality themes and plugins. You don’t really need every new plugin that gets released, only a few essential ones will do.
  3. User Name & Passwords: When it comes to log in details, do not use “admin”as the login user name for any account on the blog. Password must contain 8 letters, full secure. Look at password strength. It must reach above 80. It applies all your WordPress accounts, database account, hosting account, and FTP account.
  4. Backup: Have a backup strategy. In some cases, a backup might be your only way of getting your blog to work again. Secondly, remember to update your blog safely every time you do it. A great deal of crashes happens immediately after or during an update. This is due to the fact that it’s the time when many files get altered by new code, which can sometimes act strangely.
  5. White Screen of Death: When I talk about a crashed WordPress site, I usually mean the dreaded white screen of death.  You make a change or install a new plugin then all of a sudden, your site does not work anymore.

All you can see is a white screen, what is more you cannot login to undo your changes because wp-admin also give you the same white screen.

What is uptime?

What is uptime?

What is Uptime?

What is uptime? Uptime is the amount of time that a service is available and operational. This is generally the most important metric for a website, online service or web based provider. The counterpart is downtime – the amount of time that a service is unavailable.

Uptime is commonly expressed as a percentage such as ‘99.9%’ over a given time period (generally month). For example a 99.9% uptime equates to 43 minutes and 50 seconds of downtime.

What is a SLA?

A Service Level Agreement (SLA) is document detailing the expected level of service guaranteed by a supplier or product. This document generally lays out metrics such as uptime expectations and any renumeration if these levels are not achieved.

Commonly people simplify the definition of SLA to simply refer to the specific uptime expectation of the product, for example, if a provider advertises a 99.9% uptime, and exceeds 43 minutes and 50 seconds of downtime, technically the SLA has been breached and the customer may be entitled to remuneration of some kind based on the agreement.

What is a Service Credit?

A service or hosting credit is a common way of providers reimbursing customers for a breach to an uptime percentage guaranteed in an SLA. This is at the terms of the provider, but generally follows a model of a sliding scale, such as ‘5% of the monthly cost per hour outside of SLA’.

CreedHosting is excited to announce our partnership with Cloudflare

CreedHosting is excited to announce our partnership with Cloudflare, the website performance and security company.

Cloudflare is a content delivery network (CDN) that increases the performance and security of every website on its network, protecting from a broad range of threats and attacks. Over 6,000,000 websites run on the Cloudflare network—ranging from individual blogs to e-commerce sites to the websites of Fortune 500 companies to national governments. Cloudflare powers almost a trillion monthly page views—more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined—and over 25% of the Internet’s population regularly passes through our network.

CreedHosting in partnership with Cloudflare, increases the speed and security of your website and makes it easy for any site to be as fast and secure.

Faster web performance

Cloudflare runs 107 data centers strategically located around the world. When you sign up for Cloudflare (1-click sign up through our Client Area), we begin routing traffic to the nearest data center.

As your traffic passes through the data centers, we intelligently determine what parts of your website are static versus dynamic. The static portions are cached on our servers for a short period of time, typically less than 2 hours before we check to see if they’ve been updated. By automatically moving the static parts of your site closer to your visitors, the overall performance of your site improves significantly.

Cloudflare’s intelligent caching system also means you save bandwidth, which means saving money, and decreases the load on your servers, which means your web application will run faster and more efficiently than ever. On average, Cloudflare customers see a 60% decrease in bandwidth usage, and a 65% in total requests to their servers. The overall effect is that Cloudflare will typically cut the load time for pages on your site by 50% which means higher engagement and happier visitors.

Broad web security

At the beginning of 2016, Cloudflare experienced and mitigated against some of the largest distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks ever seen. As attacks like these increase, Cloudflare is stepping up to protect websites.

Cloudflare’s security protections offer a broad range of protections against attacks such as DDoS, hacking or spam submitted to a blog or comment form. What is powerful about our approach is that the system gets smarter the more sites that are part of the Cloudflare community. We analyze the traffic patterns of hundreds of millions of visitors in real time and adapt the security systems to ensure good traffic gets through and bad traffic is stopped.

In time, our goal is nothing short of making attacks against websites a relic of history. And, given our scale and the billions of different attacks we see and adapt to every year, we’re well on our way to achieving that for sites on the Cloudflare network.

We’re proud that every day more than a thousand new sites, join the CreedHosting and Cloudflare community. If you’re looking for a faster, safer website, you’ve got a good start with CreedHosting Web Hosting and Business Hosting today.
