When I compile I get this error:

PHP Fatal error: Class 'Magento\Catalog\Controller\Adminhtml\Category\Image\Upload' not found in /var/www/html/magento/app/code/Plazathemes/Override/Controller/Adminhtml/Category/Image/Upload.php on line 11

EDIT with the code:

enter image description here

Still unable to fix can someone write the soltion to fix this.

  • Are you sure all composer packages are installed? If something is corrupt in your composer and you do composer install/update it won't fix it. You have to force reinstall that package. Try cleaning the vendor folder and run composer install or composer update Dec 29, 2016 at 0:41
  • Can you please provide the steps to follow to do this. Dec 29, 2016 at 7:58
  • Did you remove var/di, var/generation and try run di compile again? Dec 29, 2016 at 14:44
  • Clear cache and generated files and again recompile. Hope this will help you Sep 25, 2017 at 16:28

Seem that you're trying to override the class Magento\Catalog\Controller\Adminhtml\Category\Image\Upload. So, make sure your custom class will extend from this class.

class Upload extends \Magento\Catalog\Controller\Adminhtml\Category\Image\Upload {

Not sure why you are getting the error itself but if i may suggest just making your file like this?

    namespace ....
    use Magento\Backend\App\Action;
use Magento\Catalog\Model\ImageUploader;

    class Upload extends Action{

         * Image uploader
         * @var \Magento\Catalog\Model\ImageUploader
        protected $imageUploader;

         * Upload constructor.
         * @param Action\Context $context
         * @param \Magento\Catalog\Model\ImageUploader $imageUploader
        public function __construct(
            Action\Context $context,
            ImageUploader $imageUploader
        ) {
            $this->imageUploader = $imageUploader;

    public function execute(){


I also suggest you use the Magento image uploader instead of the category uploader unless that is really your intention. Like here Create beautiful image upload in configuration magento 2

  • Just a comment. Since i do not know the intend or the page where you are using this i can not provide a specific solution but i hope this helps Mar 29, 2018 at 2:49

Try to give a alias name for the extended class - as shown below:

use Magento\Catalog\Controller\Adminhtml\Category\Image\Upload as CatalogImageUopload

class Upload extends CatalogImageUopload
