Image upload not working from fresh install with no customisation

Hi everyone

I have a fresh install of SS 2.4.2,

I have installed successfully, as i have done many times before... however when i go into files & images and select a folder then upload images I get this message...

"File is not a valid upload"

Which is very odd as the file is just a .jpg (see attached).

I dont know where to start on debugging, i checked the asset folder has CHMOD of 777 so it shouldnt be a write issue.

Any help on where to start looking would be great!

Thanks in advance,

Also interestingly, if I upload the image via FTP then scan for new files it picks it up, but then when I insert it into a document it will always crop it to a max of 600px wide, is there anywhere to get rid of the auto resample or turn it off, bypass it on the fly etc?

thanks for the reply - but no idea how to check those, would it be something I ask my host about?

You might be able to check your php log from cpanel/whm/parallels.
