    Hi BHW,

    So recently I've been optimizing my site to get it running nice and fast, it's been going pretty well and I've reached a 94/100 score on google page speed and YSlow.

    However, I recently created a subdomain; img.mywebsite.com to upload all my images as it's a fairly image heavy site.

    I used a SQL query to move all my current images over to the new domain and placed a 301 in my .htaccess file for google.

    However, whenever I upload a new image it dosen't display. I've changed the media settings in the admin panel to point to the correct URL. When I enter the uploaded image URL It goes to the correct location, but it returns an 500 internal server error.

    This only occurs in new images, and the ones I moved over with similar URL locations work fine.

    When I transfer the file over FTP It does display correctly but then the wordpress thumbnails don't display.

    A little help please? :D


    I'm currently using W3C cache, smush.it image compressor and the whitelight theme by woothemes. I'm not sure if its a wordpress issue or permissions or something..

    Sounds like a permissions issue. Wordpress dying at the point of making the thumbs. Make sure that the WP directory has the same owner as what ever your web server is running ie: apache.apache or nobody.nobody etc. Also make sure that the directory is +rwx for that user.

    Yeah you were completely correct! All working now, and with a load time of 0.68s and faster than 94% of all websites according to pingdom.com :D

    permission. check the .htaccess or php.ini to change the max upload limit.
