Please describe your problem. When adding attachments in a post I receive an error, "Error parsing server response."
Files were uploading fine previously, but no matter the file size or image dimension size I still receive the error. I do however see files being populated in the phpbb upload directory. So the files are indeed uploading to the server but resolving as an error.
php.ini file shows a max filesize of 1024M
phpbb attachment settings show max file size of 10MiB
Max image dimensions set at 0 to disable checking

not sure if it is relevant, but there have been many many problems posted here that are related to your particular host.

I would check with them to see if they have changed something.

if it was working before and you changed nothing, then someone else did. code does not change itself.
server settings do not change themselves etc.

I'm baaaaaccckkkk. still doing work on donation basis. PM your needs.

I thought of this as well in which I did email my hosting support group which is horrible at responding (Arvixe hosting I would not suggest). The big reason I posted here was because I saw quite a few with the same error but not of the solutions were a fix to my case. Please let me know if there are any more suggestions. I'll continue to wait for my slow hosting support to respond. Thanks for the help!
