Wordpress Unable to Install/Upload Themes, Plugins and Media
I’ve recently set up a brand new droplet and one-click Wordpress installation. Everything is now working correctly (took me a while to get SSL active) but now I’m unable to upload anything to the site.
I’ve researched a bunch and changed all max upload limits etc. checked permissions, but yet to find a fix.
Here’s what happens…
Upload Themes & Plugins:
Loads briefly, then takes me to page with “The link you followed has expired.”
Can’t see any errors in the console
Following WP error message: Post-processing of the image failed. If this is a photo or a large image, please scale it down to 2500 pixels and upload it again.
Error in console:
load-scripts.php?c=0&load[chunk_0]=jquery-core,jquery-migrate,utils,moxiejs,plupload&ver=5.3.2:10 POST https://findafloorfitter.com/wp-admin/async-upload.php 403 (Forbidden)
Thanks in advance for any help :)
