I assume you’re running into a php timeout. How much time does it take for uploading? You might have y look at your php settings.

It only takes 3-10 seconds to upload a 1MB file.
I can see the progress bar, when its filled, it disappears.

I set the max_execution_time to 300 while testing, it made no difference.

The problem is solved.
The firewall had rejected the requests.
