    Umbraco 7.0.3 Media Library not working

    When I try to click to upload an image I am experiencing a couple of problems.

    Firstly, the area on which you have to click seems to alter in size and doesn't fille the upload box.

    Secondly, once a file is selected nothing happens, but I receive a JQuery javascript error from the following call


    Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error) 


    This is preventing me uploading any media images. I'm not sure how to get around this should I try to use a different version of JQuery or Umbraco? Or can this be solved somehow..?

    Please help!

    Im getting the same error too - was there any fix for this??

    posted my problem here: ;

    no problems on localhost - only when deployed to the staging server - win2012 std / sql 2012 / dedicated virtual running on vmware

    problems on both 7.1.4 and 7.1.1

    have tested uploading to media on v6 - no problems exist.

    any help would be much appreciated

    Did anyone get to the bottom of this? Happening to me as well?

    Still happening to me after an upgrade from 7.2.1 to 7.2.2. Thought it was supposed to be fixed. Is there anything special we need to do when performing an upgrade, as the Media folder is excluded when upgrading via Nuget.

     /umbraco/backoffice/UmbracoApi/Media/PostAddFile?origin=blueimp returns a 404 when trying to upload an image and the upload fails.

    One thing i did to break mediaupload was to make changes (by misstake) to the "Label (Umbraco.NoEdit)" datatype.

    That sure did fck up things.

    I had the same issue with a png image from a customer.But I could preview it but not upload umbraco or open it in photoshop. Turns out the file was a .psd renamed to .png so renaming it back to psd and saving it as a png solved it.

    Was getting this error, just migrated to a new server, so thought it was a file permissions issue. Turns out it was a corrupt image file!
