Cannot add Images in WordPress

For the last week or so, I have been unable to upload images to my WordPress site. Every image I try to upload looks like this:

 

 

I have tried to change the folder permissions for Uploads and the 2017 subfolder, but it doesn't help.

 

How can I fix this upload issue?

Re: Cannot add Images in WordPress

Have you checked permissions on files too?
Are you on cpanel or managed WordPress?

Hi @jpyron,

also check that the image file type is supported.........

Will I need to check permissions on every single file I try to upload? That would be ridiculous, and something I've never had to do with any other WordPress site. 

I am on cPanel and uploading .jpg images, which are definitely supported.

 

Thanks.

@jpyron Have you installed an SSL certificate? Or changed something in the DB config? Because in the screenshot you posted it looks like a broken link to the image.

Have you installed any new plugin(s) that deal with images?

If not, try to go to /wp-admin/options-media.php and check that the upload path is correct, and save the settings, and try uploading again.

 

Hope it helps!

@jpablo

Can not have an SSL affect whether I can upload images?  Will it be possible once I have the SSL?
