HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

I have imported my site from a local to a live server and this error has come up for only 4 of my images and it worked perfect on the local server.

[function.getimagesize]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed!
HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found in
on line 223

Here is the if statement around line 223 if it helps

if ($image_file) {
$image_id = WR_Pb_Helper_Functions::get_image_id($image_file);
$attachment = wp_prepare_attachment_for_js( $image_id );
$image_file = (!empty( $attachment['sizes'][$image_size]['url'])) ? $attachment['sizes'][$image_size]['url'] : $image_file;
$data = getimagesize( $image_file );
$width = $data[0];
$height = $data[1];
$html_elemments .= "<img width='{$width}' height='{$height}' src='{$image_file}'{$alt_text}{$class_img} />";
$script = '';
$target = '';


this is a localhost url rather than a production one. Try these options in order to solve:

  1. update wp address urls in the admin dashboard -> settings -> general, there are two to change.

  2. Perform a sqldump of the db and use a text editor to replace localhost with your domain and then re-upload.

  3. Download the current theme folder / child theme if you have custom templates or made the theme yourself and use a text editor to find any instances of http://localhost. Replace with get_site_url()./restofurl

  4. In future use a migrate plugin to make this easy, it will do the db work for you.
