Wordpress uploading image hangs

I’ve just set up LEMP on a new droplet following some tutorials from DO. After that I have set up a wordpress, everything works fine except for image (media) uploading. The upload page just hangs for several minutes and ends up throwing this:

Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): The connection was reset.

I’ve tried changing permission to both 755 and even 777 but still not working, any ideas ?

You may want to check max execution time as well and also try uploading a very small image say 1kb just to minimize variables. <br> <br>If a 1kb fails then you know its not a file size limit or execution problem but instead something else.

Thanks @Olaf that crosses my mind too. @kamal hmm I don’t think so because the image is just ~100k.

This probably means that the image you are uploading is larger than PHP’s maximum upload size.
