Joomla “Not a valid image” issue

While uploading images we are receiving “Not a valid image” error message. To resolve error message refer following steps.

1. First login into Joomla admin section and check box following option. Global Config –> System

– restrict uploads = No
– check mime types = No

2. Second edit configuration.php file and change.

# vi configuration.php

var $ftp_enable = ’1′;

var $ftp_enable = ’0′;

3. Comment following line in php.ini file if you are using customize php.ini file (mostly used on SuExec server).

# vi /etc/php.ini

;upload_tmp_dir = tmp

4. And now try to upload the image.
