Unable to upload images

Hi guys,

I’m creating my website using WordPress. I’m using the Elementor plugin to make it using a drag and drop format. However, whenever I try and upload an image using Elementor, I get the following error:
" Post-processing of the image failed likely because the server is busy or does not have enough resources. Uploading a smaller image may help. Suggested maximum size is 2500 pixels."

I did resize the image and try to upload it again but got the same message. I’m trying to upload it directly from my computer. Could you please tell me how to resolve this issue?

First of all:

Which website?

Can you please fill in the topic template next time?

The error message is quite vague. But if I chuck the error message in Google and view a few posts, the following causes show up for me:

  • The PHP memory limit is too low (unlikely, 128 MB should be plenty).
  • The editor wants to use the imagick plugin, which is not installed (which is true, but I would be surprised if that this is the first time I see this error after hosting probably 100k+ WordPress sites for multiple years).
  • There is a problem with HTTPS redirects.

This last one might be something worth investigating. And if you are using Cloudflare on your site, please make sure Cloudflare and WordPress are configured like this:



Thanks for the reply. My website is: calisthenics.rf.gd

I did not use SSL to configure SSL. I used the free SSL tool provided by Infinity Free. Then I went into wp-admin and updated the link in the settings from http to https. Not sure if that is the cause of the issue as I can log into wp-admin and the site is using SSL…

Thank you.

I checked your site and it loads fine for me, although it doesn’t redirect me to HTTPS.

Maybe you can try the Really Simple SSL extension to help you set that up?


Just installed the plugin and migrated it to SSL. I can now upload the Pics as well. Thank you for the help!
