I recently upgraded my server to PHP 5.6 from 5.4.

Now Magento freezes and times out when I try to upload product images. I never get to upload them. It just freezes after browsing and selecting the images.

Magento 1.9.2

Also it could be the new patch I applied recently?

  • @DennisW please dlt those swf files if you applied security patch 8788 and then try again uploading Nov 2 '16 at 7:37

Can you please max_execution_time in your configuration setting its needs to Max. Also please check respective files and folder permissions are set to correct one, then refresh cache.

  • My max_execution_time is set to 720 (I tried 1800). I have followed the "recommended permissions from the documentation" and cleared the cache. Both on Magento and cloudflare that I am using. But still no luck. It just freezes and crashed the browser tab after some time

  • It was actually the max post size. I accept the answer as it lead me to the other settings. Thanks!
