404 error when creating a new product

Out of nowhere, I am getting a 404 error when trying to create a new product. What's weird is it only occurs if I try to upload a picture with the listing. If I do not upload a picture, the product is created fine. But when I select a picture to upload and fill out the product details, when I hit create or save at the end, I get forwarded to a 404 page not found display. I haven't changed anything recently. Any suggestions of where to start trying to resolve the error?

Disable any non-standard (not cs-cart distributed) addons and try it. If it works, re-enable them one by one till you find the culprit.

If disabling them does not help, you may have to contact the helpdesk and fork over a few credits.



What happens if you create the product without the image first, then add it on a second pass?

Same thing happens, 404 error. What is weird is if I choose to upload via “server” instead of “local” I can upload the image and save the product. It is just occuring with the “local” upload process and it doesn't happen with all jpgs. I have opened up the problem jpg's and tried to save them differently with no resolution.

I would verify correct ownership/permissions in the var/exim directory tree.

That directory is 777, but all that is inside are .csv files that I've exported.



I think it has something to do with the images as it is not occuring with all the images. Some work fine and others don't.



Thanks for the help.

You might want to verify the ownerships via your host.

i started to experience this problem too :s we didnt made any changes whatsoever. did you manage to fix the problem?

I was having this issue as well, the problem was, you are not selecting a catagory for the product you are adding (Thats what my issue was anyways)

btw, i solved my problem and its not related to this topic (sorry about that). I was getting the 404 since I was adding the product to a disabled Vendor.

i have the SAME problem. I can create a product without an image. But it won’t allow me to add the image, it hangs then errors out with 404 page :(



PLEASE HELP!
