I am having a very strange problem, i am uploading product images through admin panel but when i upload image it shows 100% uploaded but doesn't show image row at all . Tried so many things but couldn't make it work.

Please help if anybody know about this problementer image description here

I have tried giving permissions 777 to media folder but it doesn't work for me. This happens when i uploaded the site on server, when it was on my local machine it was working fine.

  • Would make sense to mention what have you tried. What about writing permissions?

  • Could be browser related problem. Try different browser.

  • Did you set permissions only to media dir or to all subdirs recursively?

Hook into a http sniffer. It looks like a php error, therefore the flash uploader can't parse the response message. Therefore nothing happens and the uploader doesn't call the javascript functions to add the row to the table, etc.

  • hello fabian ,, i also want to tell you that i checked the media folder images are not getting uploaded and this is happening for the the whole site. i can not upload images at all

  • Did you check the HTTP response from the server for the flash? Jun 4, 2013 at 18:12

Issue was due to missing gd library on server.
