Hi Hsu,

Is your Confluence install running behind a reverse proxy (Apache, nginx)? If the proxy is configured with a lower maximum upload size than the file you're trying to attach, it will throw an error.

See these documents for more info:

Apache -

nginx -

It doesn't sound like he's trying to upload an image to his own Confluence install, but rather Atlassian's Confluence.  I'm having a likely similar issue here with Atlassian Answers Image Upload HTTP Error

Sorry, I mean I can not add picture file in the confluence community as refer at the address :

Thank you.
