Photo Directory: Submission form delivering errors

Component: Photo Directory Keywords:


Hey folks. I've been trying to submit photos to the photo directory. After I complete the form and hit submit, the page loads (I'm assuming it's uploading my photo), and then I'm delivered to this error:


The webpage at might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

Unsure it it's helpful, but my photos are generally 10+ MB each.

I tested this in Chrome and Firefox. Firefox worked fine, so this may be related to Chrome, specifically.

Replying to maverick3x6:

I tested this in Chrome and Firefox. Firefox worked fine, so this may be related to Chrome, specifically.

This is definitely a Chrome thing, and has been seen on uploads too occasionally (Which is to servers, not, as well as on other websites that accept uploads.

I've not seen anyone actually be able to reproduce it when trying to, and from all I've read, my understanding is that it's an issue with a network timeout in the Chrome SPDY HTTP implementation. Specifically Chrome sends a "ping" packet at the start and end of a upload, and if either of those get lost or not returned that error is raised.

The only thing in common between this and is... Chrome, nginx, WordPress, and admin-ajax.php, I don't think it'd be something related to admin-ajax, because this error is likely raised before the request ever gets to PHP, so it's probably somewhere in the Chrome => network => nginx stack.. and probably not going to be easily fixed here..

Tested using Chrome & EDGE browsers. The problem still exists.

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Unfortunately I don't believe there's anything we can do here, without steps to reproduce.

As browsers & servers have changed a lot in two years, I'm going to close this as worksforme for now, but if it can be reproduced consistently with details of what triggers it, we can perhaps look further.
