Ever get the following error when trying to upload 2 or more images files to WordPress?

The uploaded file was only partially uploaded

This issue, with one particular host (a Namesco VPS) had been a personal battle for some time and we had given up on trying to find a solution – all previous attempts of increasing memory, upload limits, permissions, timeouts – you name it – ended in defeat.

However, this week I had to face this particular demon again and was delighted to have finally found a solution courtesy of WordPress support contributor Tempopasso.

The Solution

  1. Navigate to wp-admin/includes/file.php
  2. Enter the following at the very top of this file:
    <?php header("Connection: close"); ?>

(you add this before the opening <?php tag)

Problem solved! 🙂

Here’s a link to the original post (naturally, all kudos goes this way too).

    I just want to give a big shout out for this fix. My bandwidth here is very slow, so that might the culprit. This was the perfect temp fix for such an annoying problem. Thank you!
