missing or invalid genre while uploading proof

Postby thanasis » Thu Dec 06, 2012 1:00 am

Hi everyone,

I get this error message: "Missing or invalid genre" ,while i am trying to upload a page proof(production stage).It happens mostly with bigger files(larger than ~20MB).The max upload size of apache and omp has been changed to 200MB.I found at bugzilla this bug http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7890 ,but i am not sure if it is related to my problem.For smaller files the uploader works fine.
Any suggestions or ideas on the issue?Should i apply the patch for the bug i found?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Thanasis,

When you changed the max_upload_size for files in PHP did you also change the max post size variable as well? They both need to be larger than your file size (since file uploads use POST). This is probably an obvious question, but you restarted Apache after making this change, correct?

Regards,
Jason

Hi everyone,

I haven't changed the max post size variable.That was indeed the problem.After making the adjustments and restarting the server the problem was solved.Thanks for your help Jason.
