Increasing Upload Limits PHP
« on: May 03, 2009, 09:45:19 am »
Increasing Upload Limits PHP

By default php sets the max upload filesize to 2mb
To view your current php settings create the following file
Code: [Select]
<?php
phpinfo
();
?>

Save it as info.php and upload to your website then view it in your browser.

The two important variables are
upload_max_filesize
And
post_max_size


Next step is to change those settings. Look for "Configuration File (php.ini) Path " and
"Loaded Configuration File" on the phpinfo page to find your php settings are stored.

Edit that file and increase upload_max_filesize and post_max_size to the size of the largest file you wish to be allowed uploaded.

Then after your save those changes be sure to restart your webserver for the changes to take affect.


If you do not have access to the php.ini you can still override it in most cases on apache by creating a .htaccess file and place it in the root directory of your forum. If the file already exists just append these files to it.
Example .htaccess file
Code: [Select]
php_value upload_max_filesize 20M
php_value post_max_size 20M



Also if you are using Fast CGI mod_fcgi with apache you need to increase the
MaxRequestLen - variable in the fastcgi settings

hello,
First of all nice work on the software :)

My issue is i don't see the following commands in the php.ini:

upload_max_filesize
post_max_size

I got files up to 100MB that need to go on there? any ideas?
I was thinking to add them myself but can i just write them under there?

I tryed to add the commands to .htcacess but that gives a 500 internal server error.

Greetings
9Th|dexter

Ps the link to the info file: http://www.the9thlegionclan.com/info.php
and link to php.ini :http://www.the9thlegionclan.com/php.ini

If the commands are not in the php.ini you can just add them to there.
Some configurations require you to restart the webserver to take affect.

That should be it once you have that set. The only other limits would be webserver limits if you are using fcgi you might have to increase those upload limits as well and maybe adjust your webserver timeout settings to wait for long file uploads.

My hosts php.ini max upload and post file size is 600M.
Still I get error "You need to enter a download title" if I try to upload file size over 100M or so.
What to do next?

It could be a fastcgi limit as well for request length if they are using fastcgi for php

Ooops, my mistake, sorry.

There was php_value upload_max_filesize 600M but php_value post_max_size 80M

Now we increase php_value post_max_size to 600M and its working!

Thanks

Glad you have it working yes both values need to match in order for it to work correctly.
