 Replying to [comment:3 imath]:
 > Hi @oddev56 I'm sorry but we have nothing to change there. The WordPress
 function `validate_file()` must return `0` to validate the file, otherwise
 something is wrong with the file. If you get the error code `1` then it
 means the file path you used is either:
 > - equals to `../` which is forbidden,
 > - has more than one occurence of `../` which is not allowed,
 > - or has `../` not occuring at the end of the path which is not allowed.
 > Are you filtering the default BuddyPress upload path? If so remove your
 filter and test again, imho the path you're returning to the upload path
 filter is not good.

 Hello @imath , thanks for your reply.

 This is the same issue that was fixed 2 years ago on the bp-core/bp-core-
 attachments.php file, please check the ticket and patch linked on my first

 1) Ticket link: https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/7674
 2) Patch link:

 You can check the discussion there as to what the issue is with windows
 servers and the validate_file function and why this was changed.

 Please check that the current bp-core/bp-core-attachments.php file
 attachments.php) always compares validate_file to 1, to fix this issue on
 windows servers, but it seems that this fix wasn't taken into
 consideration when creating the REST endpoint that allows for cover image
