I installed Wordpress on my server and I can create text / formatted blog entries. But, I'm having trouble with using uploaded media. I am logged in as the site administrator. I can upload an image and save changes, but when I try to insert the image into a post, WordPress just freezes. I can log out and log back in and find the picture. The media uploads just fine, which makes me think my permissions are not the problem. (chmod -R 777) I just can't use the uploaded files.
Anyone have any experience fixing this?
I am self-hosting Wordpress on an old desktop that has been upcycled into a cheap server. It is running 11.10 and I am using the copy of WordPress from the repos.
