Suddenly, I got this error every time I want to upload an image. It does not matter if it is an file field, or an IMCE import to CKeditor. I got the message, and the image does not upload. Do you have any idea?

Notice:getimagesize() [function.getimagesize]: Read error! in image_gd_get_info() (line 349 of /www/mysite.com/modules/system/image.gd.inc

My "tmp" and "sites/files" directories have the permission 777, php5-gd is already installed.
I have also problems uploading attachments files, after upload them the size of the file is 0 bytes.

In this conversation, they suggest two solutions: one is changing the path of the "tmp" directory, but it doesn't work for me; the other is related to favicon set.
I remember that I uploaded a favicon in theme settings as I always do, and I think after that I began to have the issue. I am not really sure if it is related because this bug happened in older versions of Drupal.

Some images of my problems.

0Bytes in attachments to node

    You should update your question with more info, not comment on it :) You should provide more info about the files setup you have. Public/Private/Tmp file-dirs and permissions on those.

The issue is already fix. The hosting provider had changed some permissions of my shared account.

  • What was the fix?

We had a similar issue in Drupal before and the issue was with the installed GD library on the server. Our server admin fixed it with instructions that he found here - http://drupal.org/node/134331

  • my phpinfo said that is already installed, GD Support enabled GD Version bundled (2.0.34 compatible), but I will talk to the server admin to give a check Jan 23, 2012 at 13:53
  • As you say it was a server configuration problem, the sever admin had changed some permissions Jan 23, 2012 at 19:35
