Server Error

500 - Internal server error.

There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

500 server error means the server had an issue processing the request. Posting an image to an API is very API specific.

Here is how I did it with a binary to the Wordpress API

This is still very specific to what the Wordpress API wants. They wanted this Content-Disposition header which may not be needed for other APIs. Dropbox for instance can take a URL of an image. Imgur may need it encoded. Every API is different.

Which API are you trying to submit an image to?
