Images won't upload in media



As of today, images will not upload to any of my wordpress sites. They hang and then http error out. I’ve deactivated plugins, no change. I checked the apache log and there are errors related to modsecurity and the inability to create temp files in /run/shm/modsec_tmp/ that seem to be related to the uploaded image files. I’m clueless about this modsecurity module, is that something dreamhost initiated?

Change file permissions.
Deactivate plugins, especially plugins that optimize images.
Increase your site’s PHP and WordPress memory limits.
Remove the file path on the Media Settings page.
Check to see if the PHP version you’re using is causing issues.
