dump($newFileName); // "c86cbb038454.jpeg"
dump( $destination.$fileExtension); // "/srv/site/src/../public/media/c86cbb038454.jpeg"
dump( new UploadedFile($destination.$fileExtension, $newFileName)); // if this line called, got 502 error

When creating UploadedFile from some existing on server file script has error 504 Gateway Time-out. Nginx and Symfony logs are ok, no exceptions or errors. Script just stops on line where new UploadedFile instance initialized.
Tried to catch exceptions, no exceptions.
Manual creation like this always work
new UploadedFile('/srv/site/src/../public/media/users/04cc16a82d7d.jpeg', '04cc16a82d7d.jpeg');

This is method to parse and save image from facebook, next steps are create UserAvatar image and assign relations.

More code

    public function handleFileUpload(User $user, string $url): User
        $fileName    = \bin2hex(\openssl_random_pseudo_bytes(6));
        $destination = $this->uploadDirectory.'/'.$fileName;
        $isFileSaved = \file_put_contents($destination, \fopen($url, 'rb'));
        if (false === $isFileSaved) {
            $this->logger->error(\sprintf('Failed to save profile image. User: %d URL: %s', $user->getId(), $url));

            return $user;

        // Get the file extension
        try {
        $fileExtension = $this->imageManager->getExtensionNameByPath($destination);

        // replace old extension if exists and add new one
        $newFileName = preg_replace('/(\.png|\.jpg|\.jpeg)$/i', '$1$2', $fileName).$fileExtension;

        // Rename file with new extension name
        $isFileRenamed = \rename($this->uploadDirectory.'/'.$fileName, $this->uploadDirectory.'/'.$newFileName);
        if (false === $isFileRenamed) {
            $this->logger->error(sprintf('Failed to rename profile image. User: %d URL: %s', $user->getId(), $url));

            return $user;
// ERROR NEXT LINE, file exists, path and name correct. 
        $imageFile = new UploadedFile($destination.$fileExtension, $newFileName);
        $image = new UserProfileImage($imageFile, $user);
        } catch (NotAllowedMimeTypeException $exception) {

        return $user;

This is occur not always only sometimes in runtime, when image uploading from facebook. Tell me please what may cause such behaviour?

Hi, @BonBonSlick.
Which version of HttpFoundaiton do you use ?
What file you're trying to download ?
It would be nice if you provide a more explicit examle like:

$destination = __DIR__.'/random.jpg';
\file_put_contents($destination, \fopen('', 'rb'));
new UploadedFile($destination, 'dog.jpeg'); // works perfectly

In fact there is no loop in the constructor of UploadedFile. On the other hand check if you can do the following with your file:

  • filesize($destination)
  • is_file($destination)
  • new \SplFileInfo($destination)

Strange thing, for other devs and production code works fine, only I have bug on my local machine sometimes. 3 methods above worked well.
Issue can be closed, because something related to configs, VM or something else related to my environment. It is not bug of symfony, because it would fail also for other devs.
I did not figure out what exactly is going on, XDebug does not help, nginx, symfony logs are ok, script just stops sometimes.
Thank you for your time.
