Last updated on

In this article, i will tell you 4 solutions to fix the problem with product image upload button missing.

If you’re having problem with product image upload button missing in the backend of Magento (it’s missing “Browse Files” and “Upload Files” buttons and none of the images are showing up – Product Image Uploader broken).

Please try the following solutions to fix that (step by step and stop until its fixed):

Solution 1:

Go to media folder (/media) in the root directory and delete or rename .htaccess file.

Solution 2:

This can be caused by wrong permissions of media folder, so please set CHMOD media folder (/media) to 775 at least (or 777), if this didn’t work please try again to CHMOD all of folders in media folder.

Solution 3:

Check Flash Player is installed in your browser or not. If not then install Flash Player and allow sites to run flash (this on the left of address bar of your browser of you can set up it in Setting of browser).

Fix error by allow flash player on the browser


Solution 4:

Please check if media folder is here or not. If not please copy media folder from default Magento version and put it there (media folder should exist in the following below folders and all of files in it):

  • /skin/adminhtml/default/default
  • /app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/system/config/system/storage
  • /js/tiny_mce/plugins/
  • /app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/

  1. Good – I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related info ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, web site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Excellent task.
